Today was our first recorder club session. Thirty children arrived bright and early and very keen to meet Mrs Murray and collect their recorders. We learnt about the parts of our instrument and practised important skills of being a musician; listening, stopping and starting at the right time. A fun chant called 'Uptown, Downtown' helped us learn which way round our hands go and then we used the head of the recorder to create some super sound effects. Recorders have been taken home today and we have been reminded to blow gently and practise the skills we learnt in today's lesson.
