Dear 4th Grade Families,
As a part of the music curriculum, your 4th grader will be learning to play the soprano recorder in music class. We will begin the recorder unit fourth quarter, April 1st. We will be ordering soprano recorders that come with a storage case, cleaning rod, and finger chart. The price for each recorder package is $4.00. Students who do not wish to purchase their own recorder, may borrow a cleaned classroom recorder. Borrowed recorders will not be able to leave the music room to ensure all students have a recorder.
We will be doing a program called “Recorder Karate”. Students will start at the beginner level (white belt) and work their way to the advanced level (black belt). Because of this, it is important that they practice their recorders at home. Your child is responsible for bringing their recorder each time they have music class. The recorder unit is a part of their music grade. They may order more than one recorder if you choose; one to keep at school and one to keep at home. Students will also need to have a music folder or binder to put their recorder music in.
To help us place the order, please return the order form with cash or a check made payable to Yorkville Intermediate School by Friday, March 18th.
