Dear 3rd Grade Parents,


    This year we are going to be learning to play the recorder in music class. Next year, your child may choose to begin lesson on a band or string instrument. Playing the recorder will be the foundation for understanding the instrument of their choice and make it that much easier. Please encourage your child to practice the assignments that are sent home. You will have the option of either sending money to school and I will get the recorders, or if you wish to buy it yourself, you can do so at any local music that sells them. You would have to choose a Soprano Recorder. If you choose to purchase through the school please place $3.00 (or a check made out to NEMC) in an envelope with both your child’s name and the name of their classroom teacher. Please send your money in by Oct. 21st. Students will need there recorders every week for a couple of months. I would like to start teaching recorders in early November. Music is more fun when everyone is involved with the each song and playing together.

    If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me at:



    Thank you,

    Mrs. Hill
