What is a Recorder?
The recorder is a small, plastic instrument that is easy to blow and finger. It is a great first instrument for young students.
Our recorder class uses a custom designed curriculum by Larry Newman. The book, The Recorder Fun Book, is used in hundreds of elementary schools throughout the country.
Students learn about basic musical concepts such a rhythm, melody, harmony, pitch, etc. and are introduced to basic note reading.
The recorder is a great preliminary instrument to learning a band or orchestral instrument in subsequent years.
Recorders and books are provided free of charge with enrollment in a Children’s Music Workshop recorder class.
