Recorder Information

3rd Grade Students:
As part of Franklin Regional's music curriculum, all third grade students will learn to play the recorder this year in music class.  Recorder distribution for third grade will begin on Monday, October 3rd and Tuesday, October 4th.  Students are encouraged to practice at home, but this is not mandatory.  Students may keep their recorder in the music classroom.  If students choose to take their recorder home to practice, they will be responsible for brining their instrument to the regularly-scheduled music class each week.

If the instrument is lost or broken, it is the family's responsibility to replace it.

The recorder we use is the Harmony H147B Soprano Recorder. It is in stock at Johnstonbaugh's Music in Plum.  Their address and contact information is below.

The students are VERY excited to begin this musical adventure!


4th Grade Students:
As part of Franklin Regional's music curriculum, all fourth grade students will continue to play the recorder this year in music class.  Recorder instruction for fourth grade will begin on Monday, October 17th and Tuesday, October 18th.  We will be using an exciting program called "Recorder Karate" in fourth grade this year.  Students are encouraged to practice at home, but this is not mandatory.  Students may keep their recorder in the music classroom.  If students choose to take their recorder home to practice, they will be responsible for brining their instrument to the regularly-scheduled music class each week.

If you and your family are new to Franklin Regional, your fourth grader will be issued a recorder at no cost to you.

If the instrument has been lost or broken since last year, it is the family's responsibility to replace it.
