5th Grade - "Hitotsu Toya"

Audio coming soon!

Fourth Grade - "Pat-a-Pan"

Greetings 4th Graders -- here is the second of two songs we will be doing for our holiday show next month. The English verses should give you very little trouble, and as for the French, just give it a listen once or twice every day and you will be amazed how quickly you pick it up. Sorry I don't have a professional recording for you. The fact is, there is no version with cool drumming counterpoint -- except the one one that we do. :)

Third Grade - "Good King Wenceslas"

Here is the second of our two songs -- Good King Wenceslas. Use the video to learn the piece, but also use the sheet music provided here and in class.

Third Grade - "African Noel"

Three Minute Recorder - African Noel from Richard Lawton on Vimeo.

Hey third grade. Here's a video that talks about how to create an improv for "African Noel." Remember -- you all need to know how to play the response. As for the improv, I will be looking for 8 to 10 brave musicians who wish to "give their testimony."
