Grade Fours have just received their recorders and this month we will be focussing on learning how to play with correct hand positions and technique! We will also be working on music-reading skills.

Reminder about recorder orders!

Recorder orders are due on Friday, Sept. 25. If your child is bringing a recorder from home they should bring it by Thursday, Sept. 24, so that if it is not acceptable, they still have time to order one on Friday. If you miss the Friday deadline, you can buy one from St. John’s Music (on Portage Ave) but you will not get the school discount. If you need a recorder order form click on this link..

Welcome to Grade Four Music! The students are eagerly anticipating getting their recorders, and to prepare for that we will be reviewing our treble clef letter names and other theory we need to know to play an instrument. When your child brings their recorder home, please help them get in to the habit of always putting their recorder in their backpack as soon as they finish playing!
