In this course, students will learn the basics of recorder technique, how to play the notes B, A, and G, and how to play their very first song(s) on the recorder! Students need not have any prior experience on the recorder; however, beginner recorder students may find this class a useful review. Each class will begin with warm up activities which will be used to reinforce concepts like breath control, articulation, hand placement, and eventually, dexterity while switching between notes. We...
Students will be able to... * articulate notes correctly using the /d/ phoneme; * read iconic and/or standard music notation (quarter note & half notes); * hold a recorder using proper technique (left hand on top, right hand at the ready); * exhibit proper breath control; * perform the pitches B, A, and G individually and in the context of other notes; * self-diagnose issues with sound, articulation, fingerings, etc.; * perform "Hot Cross Buns" on the pitches B, A, and G.
Although I will not mandate homework, I highly suggest that students practice the given exercises/activities in between classes.
1 file available upon enrollmentStudents will need to bring one soprano recorder. I highly recommend the Yamaha YRS-24B, which costs about $6. Although you might find a "recorder" at your local Target or Dollar Store, chances are that these are intended more as "toys" and will not be as conducive to learning for your student. Students may choose to add a piece of fuzzy velcro or tape to the back of their recorder where their right thumb belongs. This is a tactile way to remind students of right hand placement even before they begin to use the right hand. I highly recommend this, if possible, as it will create an easier transition to using two hands down the road.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours per week in class, and no time outside of class.
