Northeast Early College High School

Guitar and Orchestra

Guitar and Orchestra

The Northeast High School Strings department is brand new, and there are a lot of exciting thing happening! We will be learning all styles of music in relation to string instruments (guitar, violin, viola, cello and bass) as well as rhythm section instruments like drum set, bass and electric guitar.

We will focus on the playing technique that classical music demands and translate that to all styles of music like classical, rock, pop, mariachi or any other music that loves string instruments. We will also have everything needed to learn electric guitar as well!

There will be a full recording studio as well for students that want to record their music, so creating a band and finding band mates is highly encouraged! We have purchased a 16 passenger van that will help us visit UT masterclasses and go on field trips to hear bands and orchestras.

New and experienced guitarists are welcome! We will have beginner and advanced guitar and orchestra classes to sign up for.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a time to talk, email Mr. Shreve at
