4th Grade students should remember to check out the Recorder
section of the Music With Mr. Barrett website for sound samples
of all of the songs we are doing this year in our Recorder Karate!

Many 4th graders are now going beyond the black belt
and onto both silver belt (Take Me Out To The Ballgame) 
and gold belt (where they get to compose a song to play!)!

Peter & The Wolf

I always love and look forward to sharing this classic tale
each year with my 1st graders. It's a fun way to teach them
all about the instruments and the families of the orchestra.

The version with David Bowie as the narrator is my favorite!

Opening Day @ Fenway!

We wish the Boston Red Sox good luck in today's game!

Many 4th Grade students are now earning their Black Belts
in Recorder Karate, so now they are ready for Silver Belt
and the sheet music for "Take Me Out To The Ballgame!"
