Students will learn how to perform songs using B, A, G, E, and D on the recorder. In those songs we will learn about quarter notes, half notes, quarter rests, time signatures and measures.
Practice between classes will most likely be necessary in order to succeed and keep up with the class. The time needed for practice will depend on the student.
Each student will need to have their own "Baroque" (not German) fingering recorder. Yamaha or Aulos are reliable quality brands for beginners and many other brands are fine as well. They are available from music stores and online. If your family already owns a recorder here is how to tell if it is Baroque or German fingering: a German-fingering recorder has hole five (counting from the top) which is smaller than hole four, whereas Baroque recorders have hole four which is smaller than hole five. This link: https://hub.yamaha.com/recorders-baroque-vs-german/ can help you tell the difference Please also purchase your own copy of The New Nine-Note Recorder Method, by Penny Gardner (~$25, or used copies are available online for less). More than one learner in the same household may share the same book. Highlighters or colored pencils in the colors blue, orange, green and yellow may be needed.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
