We are excited to say that you made it to 4th grade, the year of the recorder. (dun dun dun!!) Now don't run away screaming in horror yet! Recorders are a wonderful way to help your child learn how to read music. Although we do not actually start recorders until the beginning of January, we do send out the order forms and collect them at the beginning. It does take a while to collect everyone's form, put the order together and then order the recorders. You will find the order form to the right of this post if you need to print it.
We also learn many other things in Music this year. We spend some time learning about Music from Idaho cultures and also instruments that are specific to that culture. We will be learning what a pentatonic scale is and writing a song using the pentatonic scale. Then we will play them on the piano with the piano lab that will be set up at the end of October.
