Welcome to the 'Little Tooters' page!
Our recorder club is open to Year One, Two and Three children.
Recorders produce a clear, smooth and bright sound and are a super introduction to many instruments of the orchestra. Recorders are simple to play, perfect for smaller fingers, and children find they are soon able to perform simple tunes to the accompaniment of lively backing tracks. This early accomplishment raises children’s self-esteem and confidence.
‘The value of music as an academic subject lies in its contribution to enjoyment and enrichment, for its social benefits, for those who engage in music seriously as well as for fun. High quality music education enables lifelong participation in, and enjoyment of, music, as well as underpinning excellence and professionalism for those who choose not to pursue a career in music.’
