There is a program for grade school to have their own orchestra. But public schools are having a hard time to cope because of budgetary problems. The instruments are not cheap and they have to hire a band master. I have seen one band in a rural town. Those grade school pupils with the band uniform looked cute. But when they played a piece, I have to agree that they need not only a good band master but also a music teacher.
