In this ongoing class students will work on Suzuki Recorder Book 1 pieces.
This is a follow on course. Learners will usually be ready for this course when they have completed at least one course of my "Second Steps in Suzuki Recorder" class. Alternatively, if learners have been learning Suzuki Recorder with another teacher and can confidently play A, G, F#, E and D, they are welcome to join. If your learner has been learning using a different recorder method please contact me so that I can advise you on the most appropriate course. In this online 6-week course...
Students will be encouraged to stand in an appropriate stance for recorder playing, use correct hand positioning, and breath control. Students will develop their skills in staccato and legato articulation. They can learn eight Suzuki volume 1 pieces on the recorder. All pieces will have sung lyrics to assist with learning. Students are encouraged to play with beautiful intonation and articulation and to listen to the sound they are making. There will be an opportunity for each student to perform to the rest of the class at the end of each weekly session. As this is a Suzuki class, students will be learning to play by ear and they will not be reading written notation at this stage.
I have been teaching Suzuki Recorder to individual students and small group classes in the London area since 2013. I trained with British Suzuki Music Association. I teach students of all ages and I am particularly experienced in teaching early years learners.
Homework OfferedStudents will be encouraged to listen to their repertoire every day and to practice every day for 10-30 minutes. Printable (optional) resources will be provided to help students develop good practice habits.
1 file available upon enrollmentYou will need: Essential: Recorder Please ensure you have a good quality plastic or wooden soprano recorder and not a toy recorder. It is important to have a good quality instrument so that you are able to make a beautiful sound. I recommend the Yamaha YRS 312Biii or Yamaha 402B ("Ecodear") but many other good quality recorders of approximately £20-£35 ($20-$45) are available. Please contact me if you have questions about a specific model. You will need to tape over the holes of your recorder with electrical insulation tape. You will be able to access instructions for this upon enrollment. Repertoire Playlist Suzuki Recorder Book 1 & 2 (Soprano) CD or digital playlist. Ideally the playlist, at least the first half of the book, should be listened to daily. Optional: Suzuki Book 1 Recorder (Soprano) book Thumb rest I strongly recommend using a thumb rest. It assists hand positioning and is essential for students who continue into Suzuki Recorder Volume 2.
Students who listen to the repertoire daily will make faster progress and will feel most confident when learning the new material. Suzuki Recorder Volume 1 & 2 (Soprano) recorded by Marion Verbruggen can be purchased as a CD or is available digitally on iTunes.
