NOTE: This class is for students who have completed Recorder Karate - Basics. If unsure of what level to enroll your student in, send me a message! I'm happy to help. This is any ongoing class that students can jump into at any time, instruction is fluid and is not set week-to-week. They will not miss out on anything no matter when they join! (The one exception is that they should not start level one until one week after completing Recorder Karate - Basics.) There is no start or stop...
Level 1 Class: In this class, students will earn their White, Yellow and Orange belts and be ready to advance to level 2! We will learn: Note reading Basic rhythms Good recorder technique Proper tonguing
Students will be expected to practice their belt songs at home between classes. The time required for this will vary from student to student. Students earn belts as they are ready - not as a class. Their progression through the belts is dependent on how much time and effort they put into practicing outside of class. Eventually, students will learn each song in class, but they will earn their belts faster with some practice during the week. 10 minutes every day is usually more than sufficient for students to make quick progress!
1 file available upon enrollmentStudents are required to have a playable soprano recorder with BAROQUE fingering for use during this class. Please be aware when purchasing an instrument that not all instruments are created equal. Recorders are generally inexpensive, but beware of the very cheap instruments. When purchasing an instrument, make sure it has BAROQUE fingering (NOT German) Here is a link to a quality, inexpensive instrument that will work well for this class: https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-YRS-302B-Soprano-Recorder-Baroque/dp/B0002MS7NS/ref=mp_s_a_1_7?dchild=1&keywords=soprano+recorder+baroque&qid=1632540863&sr=8-7 Please let me know if you have any questions! I'm happy to help. Printable songs, fingering charts, and other resources will be available after enrolling in class. NOTE: Music and Printable resources are copyrighted.

Students will be assessed in class when they are ready to earn their next belt. I will use a simple rubric to determine if they are ready to pass (available upon request). If students are uncomfortable playing alone during class, they are welcome to message me and we can make other arrangements for belt assessments. Students earn belts as they are ready - not as a class. Their progression through the belts is dependent on how much time and effort they put into practicing outside of class. Eventually, students will learn each song in class, but they will earn their belts faster with some practice during the week. 10 minutes every day is usually more than sufficient for students to make quick progress!
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
