Roaring Fork Youth Orchestra
The Roaring Fork Youth Orchestra and Information on Private Lessons

The Roaring Fork Youth Orchestra (RFYO) is an after-school program that brings together students of violin, viola, cello, and bass to learn to play music together as an orchestra. There are three levels of ensembles so that beginner to advanced students can join and play in the group that is best suited to their age and ability. Five Ross Montessori students took part in the RFYO during the last school year!

The RFYO meets on Thursday afternoons at the Ross Montessori School from 4:15 to 5:15. Students and families are always welcome and encouraged to visit and listen in on rehearsals.

To register or for more information, please contact Sarah Graf at 970-306-1235 or visit the RFYO website at www.RFYO.org

Students do need to have a basic foundation on their instrument and some experience with note reading before joining the RFYO. If you are interested in enrolling your child in private lessons on a string instrument, please feel free to contact us for information on local string teachers and programs for students just starting to play. Many students join the RFYO Prep after playing or taking private lessons for around one year.
