This is part of my recorder program I developed over 4 years.

I teach recorder in 5th grade at a Title One (low income) school. With my system, every students earns 9 belts (24 songs), leading to a black belt in recorder. They learn to play 24 songs and become proficient on the recorder. Many go further to become experts on the recorder. My system allows the kids to go at their own pace and the higher ones also tutor the lower ones, allowing me to also work with the struggling kids as well as the gifted kids.

This includes 9 belts with 24 folk songs. Each belt page includes the new notes to be learned.


Check out my Mega Recorder Pack.

If you follow the way I teach recorder, you will have some students who quickly finish the black belt and need more. Go in my store and check out My Recorder MEGA pack that has fingering charts, fingering games, 70 extra belt and picture icons that students put on a chart. It will keep them busy and motivated for a long, long time. All of my 5th graders get a black belt and many go on to play many fun extra belts. Look at the program HERE.
