Recorders in Music Class!
4th and 5th Grade Music
This year, we are continuing our study of recorders in music class. Each child should have two recorders from 4th grade- one to keep at school in the music classroom, and one to keep at home for homework practice. This will minimize instruments getting lost or broken as students should not be transporting them between home and school.
Please assist your child in finding a safe spot at home to keep their home recorder. This is a vital part of their school supplies for music class and practice homework will be regularly assigned throughout the year.
Parents- if your child has lost their home recorder and needs to purchase a new one, please contact your child's music teacher to purchase a new recorder through the school.
**If you plan to purchase one on your own instead of contacting the music teacher, please ensure you are purchasing the same recorder that we use in class, so your child is learning the correct fingerings (different types/brands of recorders sometimes have different fingerings and this could be potentially frustrating for your child at home)
The recorder we use in class:
Please be sure to select BAROQUE IVORY recorder (NOT German).
