MUSIC

As you don't have your recorder at home with you, go online and listen to some musicians playing the recorder.

Then, listen and look at the piece of music we will be practicing in class. Even though you do not have your recorder, you can still follow the music. It will be good practice and help you to be ready to play with us, when you are back in school.
