4th Grade – Recorders & More!

Dear parents and students:

Typically at this time of year, we can that the loaner items loaned (recorder and Recorder Express booklet) be returned. Due to the best health practices, we will allow you to retain these borrowed items. Of course if you purchased items – those are yours to keep.

Our Recorder Zoom is Friday Mary 29! where we will play our recorders and enjoy music together (online) at least. Cannot wait!!!

In the meantime, please be practicing songs from the book which contains these notes: A, B, HIGH C, HIGH D, E, F and G.  We will be playing a few songs from pages 4 – 24.  And— if there is interest – for those of you who are playing low D – we may include “Theme From Beethoven’s Month Symphony” on page 25.

Woohoo!!! – CANNOT WAIT!!!!









4th Grade is going “GREEN”!


This year in Music Class, the 4th Grade will be using a recycled soprano (Baroque fingering) recorder. You may be wondering about the cleanliness factor – they have been well sanitized for your child’s safety. The instruction booklets are also gently used, and will see us through another year. Both items are being provided free of charge. They will need to be returned at the end of the school year. In the event that these borrowed items are permanently misplaced, a charge of $6 per item will be due in order to replace the items.

Students will have the option to order and purchase a NEW recorder for $6 and/or instruction booklet also $6. Having access to a set at home would allow your child the ease in not having to transport the these items back and forth to school for music class.

We have chosen an excellent, high quality brand (“Yamaha”) in the hopes that it will last several years.  If your child enjoys playing the “recycled” recorder and/or the booklet, they will have the option of keeping the recycled one for a nominal fee of $3 each.  The collection of these fees will be facilitated at the end of the year. This will certainly help our general school budget if we are able to use these instruments for more than one year.  If you purchase your own – we use a “soprano” recorder, Baroque fingering).

Order form link for items can be found on the 4th Grade class webpage.
