Fall Music

Third graders have started recorder!  We will keep the recorders in school for a few weeks before it becomes the students' responsibility to bring them to and from school.  We have practiced playing the note B and will shortly add A and G.  We'll start off our tunes with the perennial favorite ................wait for it.....................wait for it.............."Hot Cross Buns"!   Students are asked to remember three things:
Recorder Expectations:
1. Rest Position
2. Gentle, Warm Air
3. Make Music

Ask your child what these expectations mean!  Once the students know a couple of tunes and are consistently playing with a gentle sound, recorders will go home.  We are fortunate that the Royce Foundation has generously funded our inclusion in the Link-Up Program which includes free recorders for students!
