Chinese Songs on Recorder

In Grade 4, we have been exploring music from ancient civilisations. We learned that one of the most important musical elements of Chinese music is the pentatonic scale: a musical scale made up of five sounds that are equivalent to the ones we sing (Do, Re, Mi, So and La).

We have been learning to play Chinese folk songs on our recorders. Here you can listen to Mr Fernando playing the songs. You can use these recordings as a guide to know how the song goes. Play along or listen to it and then repeat.

Don’t forget to leave a comment on how it all went and send a recording via
