Recorder classes became part of the Instrumental Music Program in 2005.

IMPACT administers a valuable pool of resources that allow a number of ACT Government primary schools to offer group lessons on recorder. These resources include skilled and qualified teachers, musical instruments and print music. These Classes are offered to selected students from Years 4, 5 & 6 depending on school numbers. The Classes are held during school time and in groups of up to 25 students. Recorder students develop skills on recorder, tuned and untuned percussion with some students moving on to treble and tenor recorder in their second year. A school-based teacher assists with the management of the Class and is the Director of the school group at performances.

Participating schools hold combineds rehearsals in terms 2, 3 & 4 - Term 2 during week 4, term 3 as pairs and Term 4 in preparation for Bandstravaganza.
