Wish to order your recorder? Students in grades 4-5 will play recorders in music class. If you have a good quality recorder at home you are all set, just send it in! The cost for a school recorder is $4.00. You may download a recorder form below.
Ukulele's and "Butt Elephants" One more day to order! I will be going to pick up after school on 2/24 (Monday) You can order anytime before 3 p.m.
We have been learning to play the ukulele in music class in grades 3-5 and the kids are loving it! Many have asked where they can purchase one to have at home. You can buy ukulele's in many music stores and online, and you are welcome to do that. I am listing a few models that I have actually played from Music Is Elementary in Lyndhurst. This is where I get the ukuleles we use in class, and I like to support local businesses. I can assure you that these are quality instruments at a fair price. If you would like to order one, please; 1. CALL the store at 1-800-888-7502 and order and pay for the ukulele. (Do not order online or you will need to pay for shipping.) Be sure to have them put your child's name in the notes on the order, and that Mrs. Bird will pick it up. 2. Send a note or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know what you ordered. Include your child's name, homeroom teacher and exactly which ukulele you ordered. 3. Please place all orders by Friday, February 21st and I will make a trip out there to pick everything up the following week.
I also have an elephant horn. (you blow into his back side, so he has been dubbed the "butt elephant") Many kids have said they wanted one of those as well so I have included them below. Happy to pick them up with the ukuleles. If you have any questions you can reach me via email. Happy strumming!
https://musiciselementary.com/product/makala-soprano-ukulele-assorted-colors/ The link above is for the Makala Soprano Ukulele. This one also comes in fun colors and is made of wood. This is a model that many music teachers use in the classroom. It has a good sound and is durable. They are $49.99 each, and it is recommended that you get a padded case if your child will be carrying it back and forth to school.
https://musiciselementary.com/product/akamai-series-ukuleles/ The link above is for a quality instrument the Kohala Akamai Series. They are made of mahogany and sound GREAT. They are available in both soprano and concert sizes (concert are just a bit bigger than soprano, please DO NOT order any of the other options as the chords are different.) I would surely recommend a padded bag for this ukulele to avoid damage. Soprano's are $59.99 and concert models are $69.99.
