Do you play an instrument?

Pop, soundtrack music, musical, classic - the orchestra of the German School plays music of very different styles. Currently about 15 musicians of grades 5 to 12 as well as some parents and teachers practice on Tuesdays from 3.15 pm to 4.45 pm.

Currently, the following instruments are represented: violins, cello, flutes, clarinets, bassoon, trumpets and trombones. The orchestral instrumentation is completed by guitar, piano and drum set, which enables us to play modern music as well.

The only requirements are having fun with playing music together and about two years of experience with an orchestral or band instrument.

We are looking forward to welcoming any musician. Students, parents and teachers who are interested in playing music are asked to contact Ms. Becker:
