Welcome to the 4th Grade Recorder Page!
Besides being a great instrument on its own, the recorder is a great first-step towards fifth grade instrumental music, where students will learn to play a string, wind, or percussion instrument.
What is Recorder Karate?
Recorder Karate is a program that helps us learn recorder in a step-by-step way. Students earn “belts” as they progress through the program. This year, our goal is for every Lakewood 4th Grader to earn their black belt before our Spring Concert!
