Chamber orchestra rehearsal went pretty well.  We worked on gavotte and romanza. The elementary morning orchestra rehearsal start this week.  It was slightly chaotic having 50 students in a room that is new to them with instruments they have only been playing for a month. 7th and 8th grade orchestra rehearsals went well.  I'm excited to have this entire week devoted to my arrangements.  I have to brainstorm some more ideas to run more effective rehearsals and encourage more people to improvise during the solo section. In the afternoon, we gave lessons at Nelson to beginners. Two violin students with IEPs make for a challenging lesson, but we have a lot of fun. During the cello lesson, one student really struggles and needs the majority of my attention while the other patiently waits for us to catch up.
