Class Experience

By the end of this class learners will understand how to hold their recorder and position their fingers correctly.  They will know the fingering to be able to play the notes for the song.  Learners will have been shown the techniques to be able to play the tune, however it may take more practice after class to perfect these techniques. 
For some learners this will be new and they will have learned their first three notes and a tune.  For others who have a little more experience and have perhaps completed 'Step 1 on the road to recorder brilliance' this class is an opportunity to practice and add a new song to their repertoire before moving on to step 2.
I have been learning and playing music since I was a small girl.  I play piano, flute, saxophone, guitar and of course the recorder.  I have played in bands and have also worked in a recording studio where I frequently played on backing tracks for singers.  I have taught in English secondary schools for many years covering a wide range of subjects but specialising in music.
Since October 2020 I have been teaching recorder classes here on Outschool with many excellent reviews and repeat enrollments. 
There is no set homework, however to master an instrument takes time and practice.  Therefore, it is recommended that a learner spends a little time each day practicing their new skill.
Learners must have a recorder for this class.  A recorder can be bought very inexpensively from most toy stores, music stores or online stores.
The presentation will be posted as a PDF in the classroom after class.  Therefore, a printer would be useful but not necessary.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
