EGBDF Picture Draw <--- Reading music is important.  The treble staff has 5 lines and 4 spaces.  Remembering the spaces is easy because it spells FACE. The lines can be a bit harder. Come up with a sentence to help you remember EGBDF and then draw a picture to represent the sentence.  

Music Symbols Cut-out <--- How well do you know your music symbols? select this document and print it out.  Answer key is provided in the document.  Cut out the symbols and match them to their definition.

Here is the recorder music we did not get to this year.  Feel free to look at it to get a head start for next year.  If you would like to show me what you have learned, you can submit videos for each song on the Gravely Recorder Flipgrip Page flipgrid.com/gravelyrecorder
