Evans Park Students Share Music Lessons With Pearl River Board of Ed

Teacher Glyn Nixon brought fourth graders from Evans Park Elementary School to demonstrate what they have learned about playing the recorder in music class.

The latest student presentation to the Pearl River board of education once again focused on music.

Last month, it was Lincoln Ave. Elementary School students with their Orff instruments. 

Tuesday night, a group of Evans Park Elementary School students took their turn, playing their recorders and explaining how the lessons they learn with them extend into other instruments as part of the board of education meeting at the district administration building.

Music teacher Glyn Nixon explained that the PTA buys every student their own recorder for use in general music classes. She led the students through a variety of tunes, from simple ones with one note to those that are more complex. 

"Each has their own and they do not share. It's like a toothbrush," Nixon said. 

She said all students start playing on the recorders in third grade, but it was more experienced fourth graders at Tuesday's meeting.

Check back with Patch for more from Tuesday's meeting, which also included a discussion of the size of the district administration.
