Baytown Jr. Orchestra 

Baytown Junior Orchestra is like one big family, we make music fun and we care about each other

We have two main goals for both orchestras this year:
  • Be best of the bests. There are many excellent orchestras in the state of Texas. I believe to be the best, we need total commitment and dedication from me and students. Our priority stays the same, winning sweepstakes in Orchestra UIL.

  • Be part of Goslin Orchestra Family. Orchestra students need to have a sense of belonging of a place they could call second home at school and care about each other.

Parents are the most important component in making a success in our orchestra program. Your endless support and encouragement provide the inspiration to our organization. To perform better in a group needs some a great supportive role from the parents at home. The topics of instrument practice, concert performance, region and UIL contests should be brought to the dinner table; encourage and praise your child for their effort and achievement. Most important of all, reward them with what I call "Happy Meal" that consists of essential joy and pleasure in our celebrated lives.

I personally always feel motivated by the words from parents about how much the orchestra program has improved and excelled. I have only one promise for all the orchestra parents: your child will learn the joy of making music and this music will run joyously in your family for an indefinite time.
