Eight "Add-A-Note" Songs
By Don Muro
Score and CD  

8 more "add-a-note" pieces for beginning soprano recorder, in a variety of styles - old west, early 70's rock band, subdued waltz and more. Each piece lists a brief suggestion for call/response options. Included CD has synthesizer accompaniment on tracks 1-8 and demonstration recordings (synthesizer and recorder) on tracks 9-16. (Includes 1 score and CD.)   

Leapin' Lizard
(uses B) - an up-tempo piece written to create excitement; chord progression based on Jumpin' Jack Flash by the Rolling Stones.   

The Clock and the Moon (uses B & A) - slower, quieter piece which uses drum sounds sparingly; attempts to depict the moon shining on a grandfather clock on a cold, clear winter night - high-pitched synthesizer sounds suggest icicles hanging from the roofs of houses.   

The Secret Stairway (uses B, A, G) - begins quietly and suddenly becomes louder; chord progression in the A section of the piece is based on Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin.   

Going Home (uses B, A, G, E) - attempts to suggest an "old West" atmosphere through use of accordion and honky-tonk piano sounds; 16th-note pattern played on a snare drum with brushes suggests a locomotive train going home.   

Shake It Up (uses B, A, G, E, D) - early 70's rock band sound.   

Sanctuary (uses B, A, G, E, D, C) - sounds of tuned bells, koto, gongs and voices combine to create a meditative piece with an Eastern sound.   

Island Dance (uses B, A, G, E, D, C, high D) - the first half of the piece features darker tone colors such as electric piano, bass and tom-toms; the second half gets brighter through the addition of a variety of percussion instruments.   

Every Day of the Year (uses B, A, G, E, D, C, high D, F#) - a subdued waltz, with optional lyrics.
