Things We Do

We focus on beautiful singing and keeping a steady beat.


In Third Grade we also learn how to play the recorder. Here are
some helpful hints to follow when practicing at home:

  1. We LOVE"Left-overs"!!! Always keep your Left hand OVER your Right!
  2. Too, too, too - always whisper "Too" into the recorder.
  3. Leaks make squeaks! Cover the holes all the way to make the right sound.
  4. If you can hear yourself playing, you're playing too loud! (Not really, but the point is that the recorder is meant to be played quietly, not loudly.)
  5. Practice, practice, practice!!! If you want to become good at the recorder, you should practice at least 5-15 minutes 3 times per week.
  6. Have fun! Start a band! Put on a show!!!
