Recorder Games
By Chris Judah-Lauder
37 pages

Soprano Recorder Classroom Activities for Beginners.

Fun games, activities and warm-ups for the beginning recorder student. There is a strong emphasis on the exploration stage which allows students to safely explore different aspects of the recorder while providing endless opportunities for the teacher to easily assess their playing.

Most of the selections are accompanied by a set of visuals, in both pdfs and PowerPoint. One lesson could have as many as 20 different slides. The visuals are bright and stimulating which helps create interest and keeps the lesson moving.

Several of the games quickly encourage students to use their left hand on top, which then secures correct hand position at an early stage in their playing. Many of the activities encourage students to improvise both with pitch direction and melodic lines. Responding to visual images are also included in many of the lessons.

This book does not take the place of a method book. Instead, it includes short activities which create interest and make the beginning activities in learning a new instrument fun and engaging experiences. It also allows you to work with various skill levels at the same time.

There are lessons for small ensemble work, question and answer activities, test templates and rhythmic reading.

For beginning soprano recorder players.
