Recorder Order for 3rd & 4th Grade

As part of the district curriculum, 3rd & 4th grade students will learn to play the soprano recorder during their time in music.  The recorders we use are high quality Angel recorders that come with a blue storage bag, Halo hanger, and cleaner.

If you already have a soprano recorder, your student will be able to use it.  Please don’t purchase a cheap, plastic recorder from a dollar store, they are nothing but whistles and your student will become frustrated when they can’t make a pleasing sound with their recorder.

McKinley has a classroom set of recorders that students may use if unable to purchase a recorder – ALL students will learn to play the recorder.  Classroom recorders must remain in the classroom.

Mrs. Stewart uses the highly motivating Recorder Karate method of teaching recorders.  As students pass off a recorder song they receive a recorder “belt” to display on the end of their recorder. 

Students will earn 7 belts with the final belt being the black belt.  If you already have a recorder you may order the BELTS for $4.00.  You may also use recorder belts you might have at home.

Please complete the order form and send payment with the form to the office by Friday, November 2nd.  We will only be ordering recorders one time this year.

It is $11.00 if you order one recorder (recorder, storage bag, Halo hanger, cleaner, and 7 Karate belts).

It is $4.00 if you have a recorder and only want to order the belts.

Please call the school with any questions.
