Recorder

This is a recorder.

This is my recorder. It is a soprano just like yours, but made from wood.

The recorder is a popular instrument in schools because it is inexpensive, easy to play and…yes…it can sound beautiful!

We use these books in class. There’s an accompanying app – I haven’t used it and would like some feedback if you give it a try. Please note that new apps are required for each belt and there are several belts in each book.

Visit www.joytunes.com/play and enjoy playing online games with your recorder.

There are many sizes of recorder. We are learning to play the soprano recorder.

  4. Hi Miss Gaunt,
    Are the year 5-6 classes (Mr Leslie & Miss Said) going to be learning recorder this year?
    And also i’m teaching Cameron haow to play the recorder and i was wondering if the Officeworks recorders were good and if so how much are they.

    1. Hi Emily,
      That’s great that you’re teaching Cameron! Many students have the Officeworks recorders and they are fine. I believe they are around $10.
      This term the Year 5/6s will be learning taiko drumming.

  7. Hi miss Gaunt I have gone on http://www.joytunes.com/play and I get on to it and I pick the one you wont me to do and then it goes blue and nothing happens and I am using my iPad so can you please try and help me.

    1. Hi Taliya,
      Sorry you had troubles!
      It looks like you may have fixed the problem as I can see you have logged onto joytunes.
      If not, it may be because you don’t have Flash player installed on your iPad.
      Please let me know how you go.
