“Before Dinner”


“Before Dinner” is a folk song from Congo. Many folk songs have a similar “call and response” form. Practice this song at home. We will use it for an upcoming assessment in class.

Questions to guide you:

What’s the rhythm (how long do I play this note)? Am I keeping a steady beat?

What is the name of the note? What’s the fingering on the recorder?

Am I using my tongue? Is my left hand on top?

Are my fingers flat? Am I using slow, warm air? Am I squeak-free?
