I teach recorder in my general music classroom and some students really respond to it! The recorder is considered a "toy" instrument and it's just not fair- the recorder was an instrument before the US was a country! I would love to help your music student go above and beyond in their recorder music- they will be thrilled to go to school and show their music teacher. The recorder helps prepare students for many band instruments and helps them develop a sense of pitch, breath control, and musical style.
Training & Qualifications
I have a Bachelor's of Music in Education from Miami University and I'm going into my fourth year of teaching general music. Recorder is a standard part of my curriculum.
