Karate Strings Pass Off Sheet and Curriculum Guide
Part of my job is to mentor the instructors that teach beginning strings in the elementary schools in our district. Our elementary orchestra classes meet before school only 2-3 times per week. We have been doing a karate strings program and the students really enjoy earning the belts. This year, we will be using a different method book and I am totally re-structuring the curriculum. I just finished making a new karate strings pass-off sheet and curriculum guide. Students will staple the karate paper in the front of their method books and pass off the belts throughout the school year. The curriculum guide is for teachers so that we stay on track for our final concert when we combine all students together (over 300!) for a giant Monster Concert.
