This term we have the advanced recorder group sessions running 3:30 – 4:15 every Thursday afternoon. The group are all year 5 and 6 pupils and they are working towards performing for our KS2 carol service.
The children play more demanding music and play in parts.
There will be groups for beginner players later in the academic year and all children have the opportunity to play the recorder as a whole class at some point in the year. The children use a colour coded method to help them to read music fluently and to work out note independently.
Children benefit from having their own recorder at home so that they can improve their musicianship skills. I consider the best one, in terms of value and quality, to be the Yamaha YRS24BUK descant recorder which can be purchased from Normans music online for just £7.00.
