4th Grade Recorder Karate

4th grade students are working towards their black belt in our Recorder Karate Program.  So far, we have learned how to play and read 8 notes on the recorder.  We will be working on our next belt, Blue Belt, which is “Peace Like a River.”  Students will be asked to play the fast version with correct notes, rhythms, sound/pitch and left hand on top.  Below is the link to practice at home.

4th Grade Recorder Karate

4th graders are continuing their Recorder Karate Program.  They should know how to play 7 different notes.  Below is our Blue Belt Song, Old MacDonald.  We will be testing on this song this week and the beginning of next week.  If you have a recorder at home, take time to practice!  If you have not received your Purple Belt yet for Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, I have linked this song as well.  See below to practice.
