    • A.

    Correct Answer
    B. At an angle.
    Explanation
    When playing the recorder, it is recommended to hold it at an angle. Holding the recorder straight ahead or way down low would affect the airflow and the finger placement, making it difficult to produce the correct notes. Holding it at an angle allows for better control and positioning of the fingers on the recorder's holes, resulting in clearer and more accurate sound production.

    How should be blow into the recorder?

    • A.

      As hard as possible.

    • B.

    • C.

      Not at all.

    Correct Answer
    B. Using soft, warm air.
    Explanation
    Blowing into the recorder using soft, warm air is the correct answer because this technique allows for better control of the sound produced. Blowing too hard can cause the sound to be harsh and out of tune, while not blowing at all would result in no sound. Blowing with soft, warm air creates a gentle and controlled flow, producing a clear and pleasant tone from the recorder.

    What do we say for the Half Rest when speaking rhythms?

    • A.

      Shh

    • B.

      Shh-shh

    • C.

      Tah

    Correct Answer
    B. Shh-shh
    Explanation
    The Half Rest is represented by a symbol that looks like a horizontal rectangle sitting on top of the third line of the staff. When speaking rhythms, we use "Shh-shh" to represent the Half Rest. This is because the sound "Shh" is often used to indicate silence or quietness, and the repetition of "Shh" emphasizes the duration of the rest, which is equal to two beats in most cases. Therefore, "Shh-shh" is the appropriate way to describe the Half Rest when speaking rhythms.

    What hand belongs at the TOP of the recorder?

    • A.

      Left

    • B.

      Right

    • C.

      None

    Correct Answer
    A. Left
    Explanation
    The left hand belongs at the top of the recorder because it is responsible for covering the top holes of the instrument, which control the higher notes. The right hand is used to cover the bottom holes, which control the lower notes. Placing the left hand at the top allows for better control and precision when playing the recorder.

    How should your back look when playing the recorder?

    • A.

      Leaning to the side.

    • B.

      It doesn't matter what your back looks like.

    • C.

      Straight

    Correct Answer
    C. Straight
    Explanation
    When playing the recorder, it is important to maintain a straight back posture. This ensures proper alignment of the spine and allows for optimal breath control and airflow. Leaning to the side can lead to tension and strain in the back, affecting the quality of sound produced. Therefore, a straight back is the correct posture for playing the recorder.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct way to practice a song on the recorder is to first speak the rhythms, say the letters, and move your fingers to familiarize yourself with the music. This helps in understanding the timing and notes of the song. Once you have done this, you can then proceed to play the song on the recorder. Starting to play the recorder right away may result in mistakes and a lack of understanding of the music.

    What do we say for the Whole Rest when speaking rhythms?

    • A.

      Shh

    • B.

      Shh-shh

    • C.

      Shh-shh-shh-shh

    Correct Answer
    C. Shh-shh-shh-shh
    Explanation
    The given answer "Shh-shh-shh-shh" is the representation of the Whole Rest when speaking rhythms. In music notation, a Whole Rest indicates a complete silence or pause for the duration of a whole measure. The "Shh" sounds in the answer represent the absence of any sound being played during that measure. Therefore, "Shh-shh-shh-shh" accurately represents the Whole Rest in terms of rhythm.

    There are two reasons your recorder may squeak.  1. Blowing too hard or 2. ____________________

    • A.

      Not Covering the Holes

    • B.

      Playing with Feeling

    Correct Answer
    A. Not Covering the Holes
    Explanation
    The second reason why a recorder may squeak is if the player is not covering the holes properly. When playing the recorder, it is important to cover the holes completely with the fingers to create the correct pitch and prevent any air from escaping. If the holes are not covered properly, air can leak out, causing the recorder to produce a squeaking sound instead of the intended note.

    What do we say for the Whole Note when speaking rhythms?

    • A.

      Tah

    • B.

      Tah-ah-ah

    • C.

      Tah-ah-ah-ah

    Correct Answer
    C. Tah-ah-ah-ah
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Tah-ah-ah-ah" because in speaking rhythms, the Whole Note is typically represented by saying "Tah" for the duration of the note and then adding additional "ah" sounds to represent the length of the note. In this case, the Whole Note is represented by saying "Tah" for the duration of the note and adding three additional "ah" sounds, resulting in "Tah-ah-ah-ah".
