Grade 4 Music

The following is a letter from Mrs. Koepke, our music teacher:


Dear Grade 4 Parents,

As part of the Grade 4 Music curriculum, your child will be introduced to recorder playing.  Your child has received a labeled recorder and a numbered copy of “Rockin’ Recorder”, a book for home practice use.  The “Rockin’ Recorder” book is to remain at home for the duration of the school year and will be collected in June.  Students are required to bring their recorder to each music class unless otherwise specified.  If recorders are lost, I have a limited supply for purchase.

Throughout the school year I will be assessing your child’s progress through our Recorder Karate program.  Your child has an opportunity to earn eight coloured “belts” upon achieving various levels of play.  Although I will not be requiring a signed practice record, I am encouraging the students to practice the pieces in the Rockin’ Recorder book on a consistent basis.  Ten minutes of practice per school day will solidify the skills we are learning in class.  Students interested in more advanced repertoire will have the opportunity to participate in ensemble work, and explore the other members of the Recorder family.

Thank you for supporting your child in their music-making!  Feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns.

Mrs. P. Koepke
