Swift Creek Middle School

Chesterfield County Public Schools


The Swift Creek Middle School Orchestras are a place where students come to learn about string instruments, mainly the violin, viola, cello, and bass. We start with the very basics of how to hold the instrument and how to read music, so there is no need to have any prior experience. As a student progresses each year through our program, they build on their musical skills while we learn fun and exciting songs. We have concerts, to show our families and friends what a great time we have in class. There are opportunities to play outside of class as well. We’ve had students perform at All County, Central Regional, and Barnes and Nobles, just to name a few. Each year, we take a spring trip. In previous years we have even taken a trip to Kings Dominion!

We would love to have you join our musical family if you are not already. (It is never too late to join!)
