My Heavenly Father Loves Me Recorder Music

My son was obsessed with the recorder when it came home last year (4th grade) and he played it all the time. He lost his recorder which gave us a welcome break from baa-baa-black sheep and other repetitive high pitched songs. But he had been asking for a recorder again.

I bought him a Recorder and learn to play recorder book and we decided to work together to create sheet music for My Heavenly Father Loves Me to learn one of the Primary songs with his recorder! He was picking it up faster than I could create the sheet music, but it’s still be great for him to practice with!

Now, my son is dreaming of being able to play the recorder for the Program, in place of singing. While he likely won’t be using the recorder for the Primary Program, I do plan to have him present his practice during Primary!

This is his last year in Primary (with a late fall birthday) so he’s one of those anxious boys in the back row so ready to move up!

You could extend this to a whistle along challenge for the Senior primary, to see if they can follow along with the tune – and those high notes! Or have a recorder-off competition! I could see the Senior boys being all over that!

Let your oldest class of Primary children show off their skills. Kids often learn to play the recorder in 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade in the United States in Elementary school. Different school districts may pick different grades.

That means, your oldest class or two in your Primary will have had some exposure to playing the Recorder from school and will love this extra challenge! It also helps them to feel special as that last year in Primary can be difficult.

Use this classroom pack of recorders to easily include a variety of children in this activity, then clean the recorders after use before storing them.

Invite one child at a time (or 2-3 in a larger primary) to accompany you as you sing by playing along with the sheet music. You can provide them with the musical notes the week before, so they can practice playing the music, or just let them play while you sing 2 or 3 times, as time allows.

My Heavenly Father Loves Me on the Recorder

*Lower your volume before you hit play — those recorder notes are HIGH!

Here’s a quick video of my son’s 2nd full attempt – pretty awesome for just his 2nd time through. The high notes he needs so more practice on covering all the holes just right.

If that video is not loading, and you’re brave enough to want to see it 😉 you can also find the video on my Singing Time YouTube playlist.

  1. I would encourage you to purchase a better instrument. This is more of a recorder-like toy. Yamaha makes good plastic recorders – be sure to get Baroque style instead of the German that your son has. And left hand on top! Enjoy!

    • This was something given to the 4th graders at school and was just a fun side project since many 4th graders learn on the recorder. Thanks for your tips!
