In this course I will take the students (and the teacher) and teach some recorder basics, get more rhythmically sound, introduce them to improvisation through an activity, compose some simple melodies using chrome music lab, and learn some songs.
Why this lesson:
This lesson would be a great provocation for beginning recorder students, students new to improvisation, and students new to composition. This lesson would also be. great for intermediate recorder players in need of a fresh way to get better.
