Get the kids up and moving while they work! Kids copy the notes off the cards that are hanging around the room, then write in the note names and fingerings. This activity provides a great assessment opportunity, especially for students who struggle with nerves while performing.
If you are over constant assessments but little retention, squeaking on the low end, overblowing, and kids saying they “don’t know how it goes”, then this is for you! This recorder method will not only eliminate some of the biggest issues in recorder teaching, but it will incorporate the knowledge your kids already have. Using solfege and rhythm syllables, your kids will apply their knowledge to reading music faster.
This lesson set is a wonderful resource to add to your world music collection. Use it to teach students about pentatonic and/or minor music with slides showing the solfege, create an Orff ensemble piece with barred percussion borduns, teach low C, E, and F on recorder, identify same and different musical phrases, and learn the Japanese language and culture.
