Karate Belts for Orchestra
At Edison School, all students are familiar with karate belts for music learned in Recorder Karate. Now Beginning Orchestra students can earn different colored belts (brightly colored strings tied to the scrolls of their instruments) as they learn the key pieces they will be performing at their end-of year concert. So far, some students have learned all the variations on Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, and the others are motivated to catch up. Orchestra students are excited to play by themselves in front of other students in order to earn their belts and are practicing more at home.
