Recorders – Descant (Soprano) and Treble (Alto).
Recorders will have to be owned by the students, there are no recorders available for hire.
The P&C Music Program is able to acquire recorders at a discount through bulk purchasing. The cost of the instrument is invoiced through the music program.
Recorder Ensemble rehearsals happen on Wednesdays at 7:50am in the band room. Students from year 1 to year 6 are welcome to join.
Recorder is a great way to start your child’s musical journey. Students learn how to read music, play music as a group with their friends, and is a great introduction for students who wish to learn band instruments.
Students are not required to have private lessons on recorder but are required to attend weekly ensemble rehearsals, and of course practice at home.
Selected students from the Recorder Ensemble will perform at the Sydney Opera House, as part of the massed recorder ensemble for the Festival of Instrumental Music. Other performance opportunities include Music Day, Music Variety Night, Mothers’ Day Breakfast and Light Up East Ryde.
