Welcome to Grade Five Music! In September, we will be reviewing letter names of the treble clef and learning to play the C major scale on our recorders. We will be having a test on this towards the end of the month, so keep an eye out for a practice assignment to be sent home in the next little while! Also, please make sure your child has brought their recorder back to school!
