My Students

Every year my students excel at playing recorders. I offer recorder club before school and have many students begging their parents to bring them to school early for this extra music time.

We are a title 1 school with more than 85% of our students qualifying for free or reduced lunch.

This means that I have students living in poverty. We are also a public charter school that allows the parents an alternative the local public school that wasn't meeting their child's needs. My students that will be playing have been with me for 3 years already. They have been patiently waiting for their turn to play.

My Project

In music we learn to read and write music. My first year students are able to compose and perform their own songs at our end of the year concert. We also use recorders as part of our Orff program at the school. We use Recorder Karate to show our progress through music that gets more difficult throughout the year.

Have you ever watched an amazing marching band or an amazing symphonic band concert?

All of these musicians had to start somewhere. Many of them are introduced to instrumental music through recorder playing. When I ask the parents to purchase the recorders, they often come in with recorders from a dollar store. Of course these aren't properly tuned and are frequently broken within the first week. A high quality instrument can make all the difference for these students getting started.
