Interactive Recorder Instruction:  It's Fun and it Works!

Sunday 11/11, 2:00 PM
Dr. Ran Whitley, Clinician

Young students have grown up in a digital world and positively respond to materials that are in the format to which they have grown accustomed. They are more motivated if the materials are presented in an engaging and fun way. As teachers introducing recorder, you are concerned that the materials you use develop musicianship, teach music reading skills and rhythmic independence and serve as a foundation for student's continued musical involvement. You can now have the best of both worlds. Complimentary recorders, neck straps online access codes will be supplied. Awesome door prizes will be given away at the end of the session!
