LES Students Playing in Tune
Third grade students started playing recorders this fall! With Yamaha recorders and Recorder Express books and CD’s, students practiced at home and played in class, learning to read music in treble clef, play in an ensemble, and get the best sound from a recorder. Sixty third grade students presented their learning to family and friends on January 27, 2015. Many of these students wish to continue playing recorders together, so Mrs. Robinson has plans for a morning “recorder choir” this spring. Next year in fourth grade, these students will play recorders to further develop their playing and listening skills.
This year’s fourth grade students are currently revisiting their recorder experience in Music class. Students have volunteered to play solos in class, and they help each other understand how to read music and build their playing skills every day.
