Grade 4s are going to be working their way through a recorder karate challenge. They will be learning a bunch of songs to achieve levels that will be equivalent to their karate belts.
Before you attempt to record your piece, listen to it a few times and make sure you understand all the elements and when you need to start and stop playing.
Once you have practiced it a few times and you feel confident you can go ahead and record your piece!
