recorder ninja

During the second semester of 3rd grade Micah started learning how to play the recorder in music class.  They continued throughout the 1st semester of 4th grade and recently had their recorder karate concert.

There were 9 songs they had a chance to learn but couldn't move on to the next one until they earned their "belt" for that song.  Earning their belt required them to play the piece from memory with no mistakes.  Not an easy task.  Micah earned his black belt halfway through the first semester last year!  

At the concert he was able to stand with the other black belts aka recorder ninjas.  Each student in the concert only played up to the songs they had completed so he was able to play each one.  It was short and sweet but so fun to watch them show off their musical skills.
