Recorder Karate Tracks Book 3
Here are the accompaniment tracks that are used in “Recorder Karate” for 3rd-5th grade. Please encourage your child to use these tracks in helping with steady beat, rhythm, and basic recorder technique (i.e. using soft, warm air in the recorder, covering the correct holes, using the left hand on top of the recorder).

Black Belt LEVEL III - Blackthorn Stick (Introduction to an Irish melody in 6/8 time. The tempo is quick, there are HIGH A’s, G’s, F#’s, and E’s, low notes, and there MUST be a steady beat WITHOUT HESITATION in the triplets that are played. 2nd hardest piece with notes and rhythm make this a great challenge!)
Grandmaster Belt - The Sailors Hornpipe (This piece has the largest range of notes (low D to HIGH B) and is easily the HARDEST piece in Book 2! This piece is also a fun introduction to a traditional Irish Hornpipe as well as to sixteenth notes. Practice this piece SLOW at first and gradually speed up. If you’ve made it this far CONGRATS!!)
Here you find the performance tracks for Recorder Karate Book 3. The tracks are at full speed and they are a blast to play! I would suggest practicing these tracks slowly before attempting them at full speed. These songs are meant to take a good amount of practice before being able to play them perfectly. Good luck!
