The Blockflöte / Recorder program at SAGA offers music instruction for all ages and levels of expertise. Very young beginners are being led into the world of music by the music cat. We will learn the foundation of recorder playing as well as experience music with our entire bodies, listen, sing, dance, and make music together on various percussion instruments. Rhythmic exercises, games and listening units taken from the Orff inspired program „Music and Dance“ by Rudolf Nykrin will enrich the experience. The more advanced classes expand on their knowledge of music reading and performing, learn how to co-operate in an ensemble and eventually delve into more challenging musical literature.
