GRADE FOUR: Soprano- $5
I am asking fourth grade students to purchase a recorder-this will include the instrument, neck strap, cleaning rod, and case. If your child currently owns a recorder, they will not need to purchase a new one.
Students will be required to bring recorders to EVERY music class. If you are unable to purchase a recorder, please contact me so we can work something out. If you wish, you may purchase 2 recorders- one for home and one for school
GRADE FIVE: Altos- $15
Fifth graders will be learning altos IN ADDITION to sopranos. The alto allows us to learn duets and trios, and gives a fuller, more mellow sound. Some students may have difficulty playing alto due to the size of their hands- that's okay! We can work with everyone! We have a classroom set of altos- they will be sanitized every day, but CANNOT go home.
As part of this year’s music curriculum, your child will be learning to play the recorder. The recorder gives students the opportunity to apply the concepts and skills they have learned in music to their own instrument. It also helps teach discipline, patience and perseverance.
Students will be graded on their progress in class. Below, you can find practice materials for your grade level.
