Class Description

Learn to play the recorder! In this class, students will learn to produce quality tone and play accurately on the soprano recorder. Students will learn to read basic treble clef musical notation and rhythms and explore musical terminology and symbols for tempo and dynamics. We will play as a whole group and in smaller ensembles as we perform familiar folk tunes, holiday songs, and rounds. Students will also learn to clean and care for their instruments. No previous musical experience necessary!

Students will be expected to practice at home.
