Rockin' Recorders

The Grade 2/3 classes have been learning recorder for the last month.  We work on holding the recorder properly, breathing/tonguing, and learning note names and values.  Students practice a variety of songs.  We are beginning the Recorder Karate program.  Students practice a chosen song and get ready to earn a colored belt.  If you learn to play it well, you can receive a colored belt to put on your recorder.  

The levels are as follows:
White - Hot Cross Buns
Yellow - Gently Sleep
Orange - Merrily We Roll Along
Green - It's Raining
Purple - Old MacDonald
Blue - When the Saints Go Marching In
Red - Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Brown - Amazing Grace
Black - Ode to Joy
