Building the foundations for learning in the elementary classroom is important for life long learning in music. This workshop will focus on fun activities, games, and songs from kindergarten to upper elementary. Beginning with keeping the beat and ending with incorporating the recorder into your classroom you will come away with many activities to use in your classroom. Come out prepared to play, create, sing, and move. Please wear comfortable clothes for moving and bring a soprano recorder.
