What to bring to class?
All students need to come to class prepared with their instrument, band book, music folder, and a pencil.


Recorders
Students in the 4th grade will have the opportunity to learn music through the use of recorders. This class will help students easily transition into an instrumental band program in 5th grade as we learn the basics of note reading, rhythm, and correct hand placement which is standard to many instruments in the band, such as the saxophone, clarinet and flute.
*Each student will need to bring $2 to class to purchase a recorder for them to use throughout the year. Sheet music will be provided for each student to use.
