This is my first year teaching music at Smith. The instrument collection consists of broken, battered rhythm sticks, rusty finger cymbals, sandblocks with no sand, and a few usable instruments. The children have had very little experience playing instruments, and I want to put quality in each hand. I wish to start recorder lessons with 200 4th and 5th graders. This project would involve buying a recorder for each child. Recorder playing is hands-on music education and can be integrated into singing, improvisation, composition, and movement activities. To work as an ensemble, students must communicate, interact, and cooperate. It is an individual and team-building adventure that can help keep children in school. Part I of my project would involve starting the 5th grade classes only on recorder. In this way, they can be better prepared for Middle School music classes. I would only need 80 of the requested recorders. This portion, Part II, would continue recorder instruction at the 4th grade level, and I would need the remaining 100 recorders. I want my students to have the best music education possible and to see their eyes shining with pride at the realization that they can make beautiful music together.
