Students will be required to have a recorder for their own personal use during 2nd grade.
PURCHASING A RECORDER
Students will need a student soprano recorder for a large part of their music instruction this year. Plastic is strongly recommended as it is easy to clean and is more durable. (If asked by a store clerk, or if you are wondering, either Baroque or German fingering is acceptable.)
Recorders may be purchased at either
- Ardsley Music on Sprain Rd. in Scarsdale, across from Ardsley Middle School (914-693-6639), or
- Sam Ash Music on Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains, (914-949-8448), or through
Recorders will be needed in music class by Monday, December 2
Second Grade Music
Second Grade Music continues along the same lines that began in 1st grade. Development of rhythmic understanding, pitch and melodic development are further explored by applying these concepts through learning to play recorder. Singing songs and creating original songs remain a regular component of the class as well, with holidays and classroom academic units addressed in the music classroom.
