Recorder Ensemble -- Tallis Canon

One more thing for you to work on over the break, ensemble cats. Check out this lesson and practice the Canon. Have a great break everybody!

Recorder Lesson on High E

I'm jumping ahead in the recorder lessons to one about the high E -- you'll need this note to play the melody of Zuni Song and the Parallel Melody in Tune of the Buffens -- so practice, practice, practice!

Zuni Song Exercise

Recorder Cats -- this week I also want you to practice making the high E you will need to play "Zuni Song." Listen to the exercise and follow this instructions. Remember -- the more times you repeat it, the better you will play it.

Hey Recorder Ensemble Cats -- check out "Zuni Song"

Here's a recording of the melody line from Zuni song, one of our songs from the concert on December 10.

Francesca, Clark and Aiden -- I'm hoping that you all will work on this over the break. As you can here the melody is really just two phrases --
High D-High E-High E-B-B A-G-B (repeat twice)

G-G-A-G-D A-D-G-G (repeat twice)
