Slide4

Recorder ensemble

Lunch time ensemble that performs for birthdays, school events and programs

Could use as an alternate program to band, orchestra or choir. “Honors recorder ensemble.”

Slide5

Regular class recorder

Allow advanced students to play as a part of larger ensemble, everyone cannot play all of the recorders in one day!

Lots of rote at first. If they can improvise intelligently, great!

Slide6

Intelligent improvisation

Slide7

Why use more than the soprano?

It is beautiful to use all voices.

Break from shrill soprano.

Proves to children that the recorder is a “real” instrument.

Gives students experience playing multiple voices.

CHALLENGE-it takes time to find SATB music, but duets are fine!

Slide8

How do you teach new fingerings?

I start alto after students have a grasp of low C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C on soprano.

Alto is so E C! “Simply Beginning” by Sue Mueller. Play tune on soprano and alto to show difference between fingerings. Students can make their own song in small groups. “Tether ball is so E C, etc.”

Slide9

Alto first

If they can play alto, they can play anything. Recorder is not simply a pre-cursor to band, although, soprano,

garklein

and tenor recorders have similar fingerings to all of the woodwinds. The alto,

sopranino

and bass have the same fingerings as the lower range of the clarinet.

Slide10

Pitfalls

Bass and tenor are large, make sure students can actually fit their fingers around the instrument.

Playing different fingerings for the same note CAN be hard, it can also be easy, so if what you are doing doesn’t work, try something else!

Slide11

Don’t want to teach new fingerings?

Transposing soprano music up a fifth can be read on alto the same as soprano.

They do not learn the proper way to read with these instruments, but it will cut out new teaching time.
