Your child is going home with
their music book ‘Recorder from the Beginning, Book 1’
and the cd from the back of the book.
We have been learning the recorder for six weeks.
Teacher thinks that Room 6 are a musical class.
Recorder class is often one of the most pleasant times of the day as we all work together to make music.
We hope you don’t mind too much that we haven’t been bringing our recorder home to practice!
Now we should be able to play you our repertoire using the backing track on the cd.
We should be able to play as far as the tune called ‘Chicka Hanka’
and perhaps ‘Chatter with the Angels’.
Certainly we should certainly be able to play: ‘Hot Cross Buns’.
Just in case this plan does not work out, this is Plan B.
Perhaps you would like to listen to a podcast of 2nd Class Room 6
playing a tune on the recorder.
Teacher feels that many of the children are playing ‘by ear’ very successfully
but between now and Christmas we will work on reading music.
Who knows what we might achieve by June!
