If your 4th grade student would like to buy their own ukulele, please purchase it from a music dealer in Wichita, such as Damm Music, Garten’s Music, or Senseney Music, or a reputable website, such as www.westmusic.com or www.musicmotion.com. If you have questions, please contact me!
There are also many ukulele learning videos you can find on YouTube, with parent supervision. One that I use in the classroom is Ukulele Mike. He is a teacher and posts many helpful tutorials.
If your 4th grade student would like to buy their own recorder, please purchase the BAROQUE SOPRANO recorder from a MUSIC STORE in town (such as Damm Music Center or Senseney Music) or a music website (such as www.westmusic.com or musicproductsinc.com). Yamaha is the brand name of recorders the school owns and my personal recorder is a green MPI.
We will be using the book Recorder Express to learn basics about the recorder.
I have also found the app Baroque Recorder to be helpful for iPad/iPod/iPhone. I do not know of one for the android system. If you find one, please let me know.
To wash: place recorder in the top rack of the dishwasher (normal setting) or wash by hand and dry thoroughly before playing or storing to prevent mold growth.
