Class Experience

Students will learn how to stand in an appropriate stance for recorder playing, hand positioning, and breath control. Students will be introduced to staccato and legato articulation. They will learn up to six beginner pieces on the recorder. All pieces will have sung lyrics to assist with learning. 

Students are encouraged to play with beautiful intonation and articulation and to listen to the sound they are making. 

There will be an opportunity for each student to perform to the rest of the class at the end of each weekly session.
As this is a Suzuki class, students will be learning to play by ear and they will not be reading written notation at this stage. We will discuss some theory elements and students will be shown the sheet music but will not be expected to play from the book.
I have been teaching Suzuki Recorder to individual students and small group classes in the London area since 2013. I trained with British Suzuki Music Association. I teach students of all ages and I am particularly experienced in teaching early years learners.
Students will be encouraged to listen to their repertoire every day and to practice every day for 15-30 minutes. Printable (optional) resources will be provided to help students develop good practice habits.

You will need: Essential: Recorder Please ensure you have a good quality plastic or wooden soprano recorder and not a toy recorder. It is important to have a good quality instrument so that you are able to make a beautiful sound. I recommend the Yamaha YRS 312Biii but many other good quality recorders of approximately £20-£35 ($20-$45) are available. Please contact me if you have questions about a specific model. You will need to tape over the holes of your recorder with electrical insulation tape. You will be able to access instructions for this upon enrollment. Repertoire Playlist Suzuki Recorder Book 1 & 2 (Soprano) CD or digital playlist. Ideally the playlist, at least the first five pieces, should be listened to daily. Optional: Suzuki Book 1 Recorder (Soprano) book Floor mat A floor mat is helpful for students to learn play and rest (bowing) positions. I particularly recommend a floor mat for students who do not yet know left and right. You will be able to access instructions for this upon enrollment. Alternatively, if you do not know left and right, please use a bracelet on the left hand as a reminder or, you can write 'L' and 'R' on the back of your hands. Thumb rest I strongly recommend using a thumb rest. It assists hand positioning and is essential for students who continue into Suzuki Recorder Volume 2.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students who listen to the repertoire daily will make faster progress and will feel most confident when learning the new material. 
Suzuki Recorder Volume 1 & 2 (Soprano) recorded by Marion Verbruggen can be purchased as a CD or is available digitally on iTunes.
