Third Grade Recorder: Mary Had A Little Lamb in Tabs

Hi Third Graders -- tablature or tabs is a way of writing music down that shows not just want to play but how to play it. Here is a very familiar song written in a way that shows you which holes to cover (note that the hole on the back is covered throughout). Remember -- you must use your left hand on top.

Use this music to practice making your first three notes -- B-A-G -- for next weeks recorder class. I am posting some videos above that should also help you.

Happy tooting!
