I have to admire the 4th graders at my school. This is always a great time of year for them because they are so excited about learning the recorder. This year, some of the students have decided to form a recorder band. Nothing wrong with thinking big. They've had the recorder for about 3 weeks, know 3 notes, and about 3 songs. I say, "Come one! Come all! They'll be happy to play for any audience anytime!" You'll recognize 2 of the 3 songs - Hot Cross Buns and Mary Had a Little Lamb . . . . . at least I hope you'll be able to recognize the songs. Remember, they've only had the recorders for about 3 weeks. They're starting small and thinking big.
