The Allegretto Orchestra is the elementary orchestra level in the MYSO family and is a place where young musicians take their next steps. Students in this orchestra usually have 1-2 years experience studying their instrument. Classes build on the foundation established in the beginner stage; putting notes, posture and bowing techniques such as spicata (bouncing bow) and staccato (short, detached notes) in to practice while also learning to play in a group orchestral setting. Students are introduced to a wider range of musical pieces incorporating new rhythms, key signatures, and musical styles.
