Recorder Practice

Recorder Practice
Originally uploaded by egret's nest.
Our school has a very limited music program. One of the things we do right is teach all the kids to play the recorder. First graders learn and then the upper grade music teacher does recorder karate.

Ruthie is in 3rd grade and still remembers how to play beautifully. Gage is just starting on his in 1st grade. Here are the kids playing together.

Please ignore the messy house. It never looks like that normally. [cough!]

I remember learning the recorder!

Never was a flute player - took clarinet in high school and studied piano, but recently I've been trying to learn the tin-whistle. In my classes there is a pair of sisters - little things, maybe 11 or 12 years old - and they are the best students because they play the recorder. Simple instrument, but it lays the foundation for much bigger things!

Nice to see them practising together.
