4th Grade Recorders

The 4th graders received their recorders this week.  We learned to play our very first note in class together!  We learned that good recorder playing requires two things: 1)Steamy Air and 2) Holey Fingers.  Ask a 4th grader about birthday candle air versus fogging up a window air.  

There is a free website that I showed to the kids in class they can use at home to practice recorder.  It makes practice into a game!  All you need is a computer with internet connection, a microphone, and a recorder.  It's called "Recorder Master" and is available at Joytunes.com You can click the "play for free" button here and play on the website.  You can play as a guest without making an account, but your progress is not saved.  There is also an app version of the game for the iPad, however, it does cost $1.99. 

Here are some pictures of 4th graders putting their recorders together for the very first time.  It was sort of like Christmas morning in the music room :)
