Third Grade and Recorder Ensemble -- F Natural

New Three Minute Recorder - F Natural from Richard Lawton on Vimeo.

Hello third graders and recorder consort players. In order to play the Hungarian tune, Ungeresca, for culture day, you are going to need to practice making the note, F Natural. A bit of a challenge, but with a little practice several times a week, you should be able to do it. This video tutorial should help.

String Band -- "Carnivalito" - Part 2

Roscomare Road Music - "Carnivalito" Part 2 from Richard Lawton on Vimeo.

Here's Part II of Carnivalito -- the B section. For this part most of us will be strumming the chords as shown in this video. Remember -- if you cannot play the "boom daddy" shuffle, you can always play the quarter note beats, or even just the transitions. In String Band it is all good!

Hello string band members. This video corresponds to the music I passed out in class this week (I am also posting it here.) In the A section of Carnivalito some of us will be picking the individual notes of the melody. Hopefully this video will help you practice at home.
