Recorder Karate – HiYaaaaaaaaaa!

May 19, 2010

For the past month, the fourth graders at Holy Cross have been learning about and playing recorders in music class. They learned seven different fingerings, new rhythms and how to read the rhythms more accurately. Each student was asked to learn nine different songs , and after mastering each song they earned a new Recorder Karate belt.  In a competition between the fourth-grade classes, this year’s Recorder Karate Champion title went to Mrs. Gittinger’s class!

Speaking of music, our very own music teacher, Melissa Cain, was featured in the May 7 issue of The Leaven (click here to read the article online). The article focused on the fantastic program she has created at Holy Cross and the dedication of her students.
