Recorder Lessons for Young Beginners (Ages 5-7) With Teacher Debbie: 101

Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(114)
In this ongoing course, young beginners will learn how to play notes, exercises, and songs on the recorder.

Class experience

Students will learn recorder basics.  Each week we will practice sitting tall, holding the instrument properly, breathing deeply, blowing air lightly into the instrument, using our fingers to cover the holes in the instrument, using our mouth to seal the air flow, behaving like an instrumentalist, and basic note reading including rhythm.  We can learn all of these things by following directions while playing short exercises and songs.  
I have successfully taught very young learners to play recorder previously in a large-class format.  The small-class format is much more conducive to learning and making progress when it comes to very young learners.  The only concern is finger size compared to the holes in the bore of the recorder.  Please check to make sure that your student's fingers are able to cover the holes.
Learners must possess a recorder.  It can be either Baroque or German in style.  The Yamaha company has some good information which will be shared in the Outschool classroom, but the type will not make a difference to early beginners.
Parents of learners can access printouts and teacher-created videos for practice weekly in the Outschool classroom. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is no sensitive or mature content in this class.

The teacher will provide weekly music printouts of custom exercises and traditional songs in a very easy format.  Students can access Google Slides containing practice videos created by the teacher weekly in the Outschool classroom.  Students may also watch the class video and practice along with it.
