The cello has the largest range of the string family, playing low and high. Since the cello is large, the school offers a school instrument usage so you don't have to lug one back and forth, instead you have your rental at home and a school cello at school. Here are Beck students playing the cello.

Orchestra is not only special because of the welcoming environment, but because it’s a place where you can really connect with music and with yourself! That’s what makes it unique. Prepare yourself for an amazing musical journey!
Dana R. -Chamber Orchestra
Definitely what makes orchestra special for me is the opportunity to meet new friends that’ll always support you no matter what you do. On a serious note, I don’t know what I would do without my orchestra friends. I chose orchestra because of the escape from reality it brings me. Every time I pick up my cello, all of my anxiety drifts away and all I can hear is the sound and rhythm of the cello, it really brings a euphoric feeling to me.
Lucy E. -Chamber Orchestra
Music is awesome, and it’s so rewarding to be able to create that awesome music yourself. Mrs Nelsen and Ms Cho are also amazing and they work so well together; they are hands down the best teachers ever.

Double Bass

The bass is the most versatile instrument playing many genres of music (classical, jazz, blue grass, rock, etc.) and having many different names (bass, upright bass, string bass, double bass, etc.). Since the bass is quite large, the school offers a school instrument usage so you don't have to lug one back and forth; instead you have your rental at home and a school bass at school. If you are interested in the bass, don't hesitate to reach out - there are some viable options to help you get setup! Here are Beck students playing the bass.
