Like the book Essential Elements Recorder, this has a nice variety of songs and starts out pentatonic. This edition adds a CD which has play-along and accompaniment tracks. The tempo adjustment feature available on the computer software is handy when learning new fingerings or rhythms. -Kathy

Designed for today's classroom, Essential Elements Recorder Classroom Method includes easy-to-use technology features that enhance the learning experience for any teaching situation.
