So with the TeachersPayTeachers Cyber Sale coming up, I am super excited to be sharing with you some awesome resources you can check out during this 2 day Mega-Sale at my TpT store and so many others’ awesome TpT stores. I am linking up with Amy Abbott over at Music a la Abbott with a link party to feature my own and others’ products!
My Featured Product
My “RECORDERS ROCK” soprano recorder method book is one of the best-sellers in my store. And for Monday December 1 and Tuesday December 2, you can get this method book for less than $7. What a deal! What makes my Recorders Rock Method book unique is the fact that I start students on low E – 5 fingers plus your thumb. This forces students to start playing recorder with good air support and proper finger position – you cannot blow super hard and have sloppy fingers and play low E successfully! Impossible! So even though the first day or so is hard as you really just work on slow, warm air, and covering the holes correctly, once your students are making a beautiful E sound, the rest comes so much easier than the traditional “start on B” method. Before Thanksgiving, I had 120 fifth graders playing a recorder concert of 4 tunes playing mostly in tune, in unison, and with good tone. That was after only seven 45-minute music classes. This method works!!!
Another cool thing with my recorder method book is the leveled testing system. There are certain songs throughout the method book that are colored that can be used for assessment. I have my students play the colored songs individually for me so I can assess their progress and give individual help. Each level earns the students a colored rainbow loom band that the students can display on their recorders. As we work through the levels, they will build a rainbow on their recorder! So pretty!
