  1. what do I need besides a recorder and a beginning recorder book like Nine Note Recorder Method by Gardner or Recorder from the Beginning by Pitts? Do I need a resource for beginning music theory to teach how to read music too? Anything else needed to properly care for the recorder? This is for myself with limited music reading ability and my 1st grader next year. Thanks!
  2. We are most of the way finished with our first year of homeschooling. In the fall, my son has requested a music curriculum that would teach him to play the recorder. I need it to be affordable and easy to implement. He is currently taking piano lessons. And our previous music curriculum has been listening to songs and discussing composers. He now wants to learn to play more of it.
  3. My 4.5 y/o DS is showing interest in learning to play the recorder. He has my old soprano (roughly a foot long = soprano, right?), and has been trying to get the tone right and make it play different (random) notes. But I think his hands are too small because it just shrills and squeaks and his fingers seem to keep slipping off the holes. So…what should I do? Buy him a sopranino recorder and an alto book? Try a different instrument? If so which one? Wait until he is older? Which brand of instrument/books/etc. would you recommend? Thanks for any advice :001_smile:
  4. Does anyone have a recommendation for a decent one, with a good book that shows how to play?
  5. Product Detail: Recorder Karate has anybody here had any expereince with this? Did you like it?? thoughts??
  6. I'm just looking for ideas. We had to take our dd out of piano due to finances and car issues. She really doesn't miss it much and never really loved it. However, I thought it might be nice if she could continue doing something musical on her own. It could be very simple but cannot take much help musically from Mom because I don't know a thing about music. At all. One idea is that I have Music ACE sitting here unused, which she could easily finish up. Another idea is a lap harp. Are they useful? They are certainly fun. It's probably best if it's NOT piano-related because she was a bit burned out anyway...But something Music-related would be great.
  7. I was asked today what I do to teach my children music (my oldest dd plays piano) and once I thought about it, there is quite a bit I do. I thought we could pool resources and ideas on how we do music education for our kids. Here were the ideas I came up with... CD's Beethoven Lives Upstairs (and all the other ones in the series. You can see them if you scroll down on this page) DVD's The Composers Specials (You can get these through the library system individually, they are fantastic! There are also artists & inventor specials by the same company) Books Story of the Orchestra Mike Venezia's books (artists & composers) Websites Classics for Kids There is a ton of amazing stuff on this website. You'll have to browse it to see it all. Music Lessons I always recommend piano first. I am no expert, but the ability to play the piano has allowed dd to easily pick up other instruments such as guitar, violin and even the accordion. Musical Theater My family has participated in "A Christmas Carol" musical for the last 5 years. It has extensive voice training and has taught us to sing in parts. Software Music Ace Excellent computer program. What are your ideas?
  8. I have an almost 5 yo dd and want to start her with piano soon. Since I don't have room or $ for a full on piano, what keyboard recommendations do you have?? Also, I thought I would get a recorder as well... but have never played and was looking at options- alto, soprano, key of c, key of f - what am I supposed to buy? Thanks!
  9. Next year, our 2nd grader (by then 7.5) would like to start learning to read music and play an instrument. Our house is probably too small for a keyboard (it really is tiny), so we've thought about starting with recorder or penny whistle. My vote is recorder. ;) I think it will be less shrill. When is a good time to start with music lessons for a motivated, interested, diligent student who already enjoys singing, sings well and on pitch, and understands a bit about rhythm, melody, harmony, notes, the instruments of the orchestra, and so on (IOW, the very basics). Any recommendations for recorder? Anything else I should know ahead of time? :bigear:
  10. My boys are 8 and one is really taking to piano and the other one tried it for about a month and says he really wants to learn the flute. SWB says everyone should get 2 yrs. of piano so I was going w/ that. Am I doing my "flute" son a disservice? Do they teach lessons in flute for 8 yr. olds. I'm really afraid he'll find it as challenging as the piano. Alley
  11. I've realized that the arts and "extras" are being neglected, and I'm trying to remedy the situation. The problem is, I'm about as musical as a rock. Ok, maybe not. Rocks can be used to make a rhythm. :D I have the opportunity to pick up several Suzuki Recorder School Soprano Recorder books (vols. 1-3) at a really cheap price. As in, less than $10 for all three. Add in some money for a pair of recorders, and that's still under $30 for at least basic instrument exposure for my son. I'm seriously considering it, but I have a big question. My only musical experience was recorder in 3rd-4th grade, and after-school choir from 3rd-5th grade. I never learned how to read music. I'd pretty much be starting from scratch. Is it possible I could manage to teach DS with these Suzuki Recorder School books, even with my lack of musical experience?
  12. A while ago, we purchased Music for Little Mozarts to use in teaching beginning keyboard skills and music theory to our girls. We thought that by now we would be in a house with more space and be able to have a piano/keyboard all set to go. Long story, short, that has not happened (and will not for a while at least). So.... we could begin our music lessons with recorders. We've been singing and playing rhythm instruments for several years now. The girls all sing beautifully, can keep a steady beat, and can sing and play drums together. I really like Little Mozarts. I like how it teaches musical vocabulary, basic elements of music theory (such as bass clef, treble clef, 4/4 time, quarter notes, etc.). I like how it uses enjoyable songs to engage young students, and holds the teacher's hand (fairly well), and has several components to the lessons. Is there a well-done program for recorder? :bigear: I've heard of Penny Gardner Nine-Note Recorder and would LOVE some feedback about this or any other recorder course (for next year -- 2nd grader & K twins). Thanks!
  13. Can anyone help me? I'm looking for a simple instrument to teach my girls. The problems are I've never played an instrument, and we can't do lessons right now. Any suguestions for an easy instrument and maybe a good book to go with it. I was thinking about the recorder, has anyone had success with teaching this? Any other instruments that might be easy for us? Thanks, Al
  14. ....so, I need suggestions on what book to get (we just need a book, we have 2 recorders) . I've been looking on eBay, Rainbow, CBD, Amazon. I'm getting a little frustrated trying to find a good one. Seems like there's always mixed reviews. I need something super easy or she'll just get frustrated. I don't want one that's going to be teaching notes right away. Is there anything that has dots, or numbers for each finger, or something instead of notes on a staff?? :confused:
  15. I just ordered Oak Meadow's Beginning Recorder and haven't received it yet and I'm wondering what kind of recorder they suggest. We don't have much of a budget for music at the moment so I'm starting out with this. From the picture on the OM site the recorder they use looked like this... http://www.amazon.com/Angel-301N-Three-Piece-Sopranino-Recorder/dp/B001LY6XFK/ref=sr_1_11?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1284431230&sr=1-11 or this (which I think looks better) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002F7C5Y/ref=ord_cart_shr?ie=UTF8&m=A16A7Q5XF4OWBQ My Mom is ordering a bunch of stuff for my birthday on Amazon soon so I'm hoping to find one before that:)
  16. Where can I order recorders that are not ugly plastic? I also would like some beginning recorder book so i can teach the little ones to read some simple music. Thanks! Faithe
  17. Hi! I have a friend who shared with me the program her ds uses and I cannot for the life of me find the link (note to self: keep better bookmarks! :tongue_smilie:) I am looking for an introductory recorder program for ds who will be 9. I want it to show all the finger placements so he can refer back to it after we go over it and practice. He has no experience with reading music whatsoever so it would have to go over those basics as well. I was hoping by this point we would be able to start piano lessons but we are not financially at a point where we can pay for lessons. Still I want to start some music, even if small and he is so excited about the recorder after seeing his friend play several songs at a recent get together. So what is out there??? :bigear:
  18. Hi, I'm looking for a small musical instrument to take on camping trips. Recorders look like a good possibility but I don't know anything about them. What are some things to consider? What are the reasons one would choose either the alto or soprano recorder? Thanks for your help!
  19. My kids ages 9 and 6.5 (7 in Nov) have asked to learn an instrument. They said "flute" but they really mean recorder. We have a few $1 ones from walmart, but I'm wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a beginning instruction book. I used to play the clarinet a long time ago (we're talking 7th-8th grade) and could read music well although I'm a bit rusty so something basic is good. Is there something like "Teaching recorder for dummies" or the like out there. Also would the el cheapo recorders we have be ok or is there another one you suggest instead. Thanks so much.
