I am starting a recorder club where students play the soprano recorder and learn the alto recorder. I wanted to view what materials are available for the alto recorder and have been pleased with this publisher in the past.

I have an alto recorder and have been playing it with my grandchildren who learned a beginners book from me last year.

I wanted elementary level beginning alto book - I like Sweet Pipes but it's for adults.
