Blank recorder fingering charts are very useful for recorder lessons. In fact, they are an essential tool for players of all levels, from beginners to advanced. A blank recorder fingering chart is a visual representation of the recorder that outlines the recorder’s finger holes without any predefined finger positions. It allows us to visualize finger positions for a note. We offer some free blank finger charts that are ready to print. You can download the PDF for free and use them in your lessons. Since students have to actively participate by filling in the correct finger positions, this approach encourages deeper learning and understanding of the instrument.

How to use blank Recorder Finger Charts

For beginners who are just starting to learn the basics, it’s a good idea to use a worksheet of the recorder diagram to help them note which hand is responsible for which hole. Then they should also note which finger of the hand to use to hold each hole.

But the main purpose of these worksheets is to learn and memorize the finger positions for notes. Filling in the holes to be covered for a particular note helps young students make the connection between visual note recognition and the corresponding physical finger placement.

Teachers can also use these blank finger charts to teach songs. Before playing a song on the recorder, we need to become familiar with the notes that are required. So the first step might be to go through the notes using the worksheets. When teaching in class, you can also hang them on the wall or on a whiteboard so that students can see how to play the notes.
