Recorder Tuition for P4 Pupils

To Parents of P4 Pupils

 

Dear Parents,

 

RECORDER TUITION FOR P4 PUPILS

 

Part of the 5-14 Guidelines for music, issued by the Scottish Office, states that at Level B it is appropriate to learn a musical instrument and Mrs. Brockley, music specialist, undertakes to teach recorder to all our P4 and P5 pupils.

 

As a result of this we ask parents to support this part of the curriculum by providing their child with a recorder.  These cost between £6 and £12 in shops but, by buying in bulk, school can buy them and sell to you for £5.

 

Some children may already have a recorder at home and Mrs. Brockley will be pleased to advise whether or not it is suitable.

 

Children will be asked to do some practising at home – a few minutes at a time, two or three times a week.

 

The majority of children enjoy this experience and they will have the opportunity to continue in a recorder group in future years.

 

Please complete and return the attached slip by 21st January 2008.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

MORAG THOM

 

Head Teacher
