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.
