Recorder Hero heard right...Recorder Hero! This year grade 4 and 5 students are working on their recorder skills and hoping to earn the ultimate title of "Recorder Hero".

Students progress through a series of levels individually, with each level becoming increasingly difficult by adding more notes and varying rhythms. For most of the levels students are given a choice as to which song they want to play out of a group of choices. Each group of choices offers pieces that vary in difficulty to ensure that all students have an opportunity to succeed and move on to new levels.

Each time a student passes a level, he/she earns a badge on a certificate.

Students who have achieved Recorder Hero status gain access to the "Unlocked Songs".

Song choices are as follows:

Fan (Notes: BAG)

Hot Cross Buns
Sleep, Baby Sleep
