Hello, welcome back to another recorder tutorial. On this occasion we bring you another very simple Christmas song to play with the flute.
We wish you a merry Christmas!
This is an ideal Christmas carol for recorder beginners, the rhythm is very simple and so is the melody. It is also within the major scale, in this case, we will use the major scale of F.
The F major scale is composed of these notes:
F, G, A, B flat, C, D, E
You must pay special attention to the note B-flat, keep in mind that it is in the key signature.
Therefore, when you see the note “B” on the staff, you must play B-flat.
This time we wanted to incorporate some audios into this recorder lesson so you can practice with them.
In the first audio you will hear the song with the recorder melody included, so you will not miss it, as you will have the reference recorder melody at all times.
This flute carol has a musical bar of 3 by 4, so babies pay special attention to the accents of the rhythm. The 3 x 4 measure is widely used in carols, reminiscent of the Silent Night carol, it is also a 3/4.
The second audio is prepared for you to play the recorder melody on top, so you can practice we wish you a merry Christmas with a musical base, which will be more fun, and also force you to play in rhythm.
But well, let’s start playing we wish you a merry Christmas on your recorder.
