About Cockrill Orchestra

Cockrill Middle School opened its doors in 2008, and since then the orchestra program has grown both in quantity and quality.  Students learn to play violin, viola, cello, and bass in daily rehearsals.  No prior experience necessary!  Students begin playing in 6th grade then move on to several higher levels of orchestra in 7th and 8th grade.

Cockrill orchestras are directed by John Powelson.
