Recorder Karate

If you are interested in learning to play an instrument, this beginner recorder class is a great way to start! Recorder karate motivates students to learn to read music, play an instrument, work as an ensemble and develop confidence to perform as a soloist. Working at their own pace, students will receive colorful "Karate Belts" to hang from their recorder as they work through each progressively more difficult tune.
