Recorder Belt Testing - Reading AND Playing Music

After playing the music for each belt test, every student must also correctly answer a music theory question before I give them their belt. (For example, students must correctly identify: a note name, pitch, note value, or rest.) This ensures that students are actually reading the music and are not playing from memory only.
