Recorder Information

Our 3rd Grade students learn the basics of playing a wind instrument by learning the recorder.

Studying recorder provides an excellent foundation for the basics of playing a wind instrument such as:

  • posture
  • breath support and control
  • embouchure
  • tounging
  • fine motor skills
  • music literacy (reading notes, rhythms, musical scores)
  • improvisation
  • listening

We will begin our recorder unit in 3rd grade in January, 2019.
