Each section leader will have leadership responsibilities beyond those of section members. Principal players of each string section are responsible for checking bowings on individual parts and marking them if missing.
- All members of the orchestra are responsible for knowing their assigned part to the best of their ability and should confer with their private teachers and/or section leaders whenever necessary.
- Members are responsible for bringing their instruments (including mutes, extra strings, etc. if applicable), their music, a pencil with an eraser and a music stand to all rehearsals. Instruments should be in good working order. All items should be clearly marked with the student's name.
