My Recorder Reader 2 (3rd Edition)
47 Songs in C and F Pentatonics
By Isabel McNeill Carley
Softcover Book
23 pages
For beginning soprano recorder player  

The collection of folk songs, original melodies and short exercises are all pentatonic and ordered so that the beginning recorder player can gain security with each new tone before adding another. It’s a “reader” book with almost no explanations of notation or techniques. C and F major pentatonic and their related minors (a and d) and a few variant pentatonic are used. Tones introduced are G E A C’ C D’ E’ F F’.  

Simple accompaniments for non-pitched and pitched percussion are sometimes included.  

This third edition retains the contents of the second edition with the addition of expanded reference and resource materials.
