Class Experience

For beginning students with limited to no experience on recorder, we will cover:
- the parts and different sizes of recorders
- developing proper air flow and articulations
- developing proper embouchure and instrument carriage
- developing your first three pitches and learning a simple 3-pitch song
I have completed training in the Suzuki approach and the Suzuki Recorder School through the Suzuki Association of the Americas.
Students will be expected to practice approximately 10-15 mins each day between classes. This practice time will include assigned listening assignments and practicing the skills covered in previous classes. 
Beginning to Intermediate 3-piece Quality Plastic/Resin Soprano Recorder (Baroque Fingering) (recommendations listed below) - Acceptable - Aulos 903 Soprano Recorder - approx. $5 + shipping - Good - Yamaha 302B Soprano Recorder - approx. $18 + shipping - Best - Yamaha 402B Soprano Recorder - approx. $25 + shipping *Please note: many very inexpensive recorders are poorly constructed and will make the process of learning to play frustrating and/or impossible. If you already have a recorder, or are purchasing a recorder different from these listed above, please let me know so we can evaluate if the recorder is well-made. *It is also important that the recorder is a 2-piece or 3-piece recorder so that we can work on the head joint alone. A 3-piece recorder is preferred so that we are able to rotate the foot-joint to align with your child's right pinkie when they advance to covering the bottom set of holes in the future. Other basic materials: Small ribbon, light-weight scarf, or tissue Blue painter's tape Bubbles and small bubble wand Straw (wide straws, such as McDonald's straws work best) and ziplock bag to keep straw clean when not in use. Space: Students should be taking class in a space where they are able to stand and move their body. Standing helps promote better playing posture.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Assessment throughout will be informal and based on demonstrating mastery of the presented skills and retention of material from lesson-to-lesson.
2 hours 5 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Learners may need parental support with practice between classes.
Supplementary guided practice videos may be assigned depending on the learner's individual needs. These videos are made available via private YouTube links. While they are marked as "made for children" when uploaded to YouTube, parents should determine the level of monitoring their learner may need while using the YouTube website. If you are uncomfortable with your learner using YouTube, please notify me during our first class together so that an alternative may be determined.
