Recorder Instruction

Fourth and fifth graders will be learning to play the recorder in music class. The recorder is a simple flute-like instrument that helps students begin to learn to read music.

Each student will need to have their own instrument which can be purchased through the school for $5. They can also be purchased at any of the music stores in Austin or online. It is beneficial for students to have a recorder at school and one at home for practice. Summitt will participate in the Austin ISD Recorder Festival again this year. It will be held in May at the AISD Performing Arts Center.

Choral Festival

The AISD Choral Festival will be held October 27, 2016 at the AISD Performing Arts Center. Fifth grade students who are interested in participating in this performance with other AISD Elementary, Middle, and High School students need to be in touch with the music teachers. Auditions begin on Tuesday, Sept 20 at 3:10pm until 3:45pm in the Music Room (210). We will alternate rehearsals on Mondays and Tuesdays if needed.

Thank you for supporting our music program at Summitt.
