 Classroom Recorder

 

 

Learning and playing recorders is always an exciting time!  The most asked question I get by students is "When are we going to start recorders?"  I hope this page will help. 

 

 

  • 3rd grade - We start learning recorders during the 2nd semester.
  • Your child has begun learning about instruments and may even want to play a band or orchestra instrument in middle school.  In preparation for that, one of the new skills we are going to learn is playing the recorder!

  •  

    We have recorders and lesson books that your child can use for each classroom.  The recorders will be sanitized after each class period.  I have a few recorders and books available for check out from the library for 10 days at a time.  They will be sanitized after they are returned.

  •  

    Your child may purchase a recorder from the school book store for $5.30.   We have a very few used recorders that may be purchased for $2.50 and will be available from the school book store as well.  Your child does not have to purchase a recorder, it just helps them to learn it a little more quickly as they can practice at home. We offer neck straps in red for $1.50.

  •  

    I look forward to exploring music with your child!  If you have any questions feel free to call or email me.

  • 4th grade - We will review what we learned last year beginning the 1st quarter.     Please begin bringing your recorder to class to start our review of what we know. 

 

  • 5th grade - Recorder playing will happen throughout the school year as needed.

 

Recorders are available for purchase in the school office.   As of this date, they are priced as follows:

 

New recorders: $5.30

Used recorders

 when available: $2.50

Neckstraps:     $1.50

Recorders are available for 10 day check out from the school library.  This is free.

 

There is also a classroom set of recorders that are available for use in the classroom only.  They are disinfected after each use.
