Recorders for Music

5th grade students at Bay View will be learning how to play recorders in music class this year. Therefore, each student should either bring a recorder from home or use one provided by the school. Students may also purchase inexpensive recorders for $2. If you would like to purchase an instrument for your child, please send $2 before Friday, January 26th.

The recorder curriculum students will use is called "Recorder Karate". Each student will receive a booklet with songs and a fingering chart. Students will receive different colored ribbons (belts) for each song they successfully perform in music class.
