Let’s Get Ready For The Recorder!

All 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will be learning to play the soprano recorder in music class beginning in January. The recorder gives the students the opportunity to apply the concepts and skills they have learned in music, as well as fulfills national standards for music for playing classroom instruments individually and as a group.

It is important for each student to have a recorder. We will be playing as a class, performing, and taking grades on the recorder. We would like for each child to have the opportunity to play this instrument to the best of their ability.

I am asking the students to purchase a recorder for $5.00. This will include a 3 piece Aulos Soprano Recorder, cleaning rod, fingering chart, and carrying case. If your child currently owns a recorder that is in good playing condition, they will not need to purchase a new one. For health reasons, students may not share instruments.

We will be accepting money for recorder orders from December 4th, 2017 to December 15, 2017. Please, email me at michelle.herb@austinisd.org if you have any questions.
