Description

Class Experience

Learning goals include:
 - proper playing position
 - knowledge of basic instrument care
 - Correct fingering and breath to elicit a good tone for the pitches Low D, Low E, B, A, G, C, and high D
 - Reading the pitches Low D, Low E, B, A, G, C, and high D on the treble clef staff
 - Reading quarter notes, eighth notes, quarter rests, and half notes
 - Playing eight individual songs
Students should practice daily for about 5-15 minutes or as needed to feel comfortable with the weekly assignments.
The student will need a soprano recorder with Baroque fingering. Please take note: soprano recorders are available with both "German" and "Baroque" fingering. This class is designed for Baroque fingering instruments. Many soprano recorders are available very inexpensively. However, there are also some very poor quality recorders available in discount stores. Recorders traditionally have three pieces. They are designed to come apart for several reasons, including tuning, cleaning, and most importantly, adapting to the student's finger length. It is BEST for the student to have a 3-piece recorder. One-piece recorders are NOT recommended under any circumstances. The recommended recorders below all feature Baroque fingering and 3-piece construction. Recommended instruments: Yamaha YRS-302B Soprano Recorder, Baroque fingering, Key of C: https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-YRS-302B-Soprano-Recorder-Baroque/dp/B0002MS7NS Aulos Soprano Recorder (A303ADB) Baroque fingering https://www.amazon.com/Aulos-Classroom-Recorder-Soprano-English/dp/B001LG7TUG Music (songs) will be provided by the teacher.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
