1. "Gently Sleep" only has three letters, just like Hot Cross Buns: B, A, and G. But they're in a different order than they were for "Hot Cross Buns." Can you figure it out? Try playing with the video to practice for class.

  2. This video gives a brief overview of fingering positions for B, A, and G, and reviews quarter notes and half notes. Students can use the audio track for playing along.

  3. "It's Raining" may be a little more tough than white, yellow, or orange, but it's possible with careful practice! The new letter is E, which is the bottom line of the treble clef, and this song also reviews A and G. Use this video to practice for class.

  4. "Merrily We Roll Along" also has three letters - B, A, and G. It's the last song in Recorder Karate that will have only these three letters. Memorize what B, A, and G look like, and also how long notes last (quarter notes or half notes). Reading music will be very important for Green Belt, coming up next!
