This book is a good option for students who have mastered book 1 and the diatonic notes from low D to high D. The information boxes on Beethoven ("Ode to Joy"), Johann Strauss, Jr. ("Waltz"), Tchaikovsky ("Birch Tree"), and Hayden ("Suprise Symphony" theme) are helpful. The two-part arrangements add interest. - Kathy
The Complete Recorder Kit 2
By Denise Gagne
Book and CD
Grades 4 - 6
24 songs for 2-part soprano recorder, with transposed parts for optional use of alto recorder.
This sequential resource is intended for second year recorder students, but also reviews the notes covered in volume 1 (item 805001, available separately). New notes added are low F#, D#, low C, high C#, Bb, and G#.
Standard notation is used, and each song tells how many bars of introduction are given on the CD. Includes some pencil activities, music symbol definitions (accents, slur, etc.) and composer biographies. The included CD has full performance (with recorder and accompaniment) as well as accompaniment-only tracks for each song.
Progression: B, A, G, E, D, F#, high D, high C, D#, F, C, high C#, Bb, G#.
