Recorder

Grades  4 - 6

Karate Chop Recorder is used as a way to inspire the students to practice. You do not have to use the skills that I listed here. Mine have changed drastically since these were first posted. When they earn the colour they get a piece of coloured string to tie around the recorder. All of the sheet music are my own arrangements.

Guitar

Grades 4-12 (2 Booklets)

Here are PDFs of 2 booklets I designed to help guide learners through songs, progressions, and concepts to help learning the guitar. Book 1 is for beginners, book 2 is for more skilled players.
