Recorders can be an ideal teaching tool for classroom music.
Selections in this book are proven, practical, and adaptable for 3rd through 6th grade music classes. The pieces challenge, yet lend themselves to success as students progress from three-note songs to more complex notation.
Lesson plans included with each arrangement suggest ways to present concepts and skills necessary to perform the songs. Each plan begins with teaching the melody and includes visuals. Some students are visual learners, whereas others aurally relate and absorb concepts being taught. Accompanying parts are broken down and presented in an elemental style.
Includes a CD ROM with full scores in landscape mode for easy projection on a whiteboard.
