I took an Orff Certification level 1 course and scanned through the book. I thought it melded recorders and the Orff philosophy very well together.

I'm in the process of getting Orff-certified and many Orff teachers have recommended this book.

I've used this resource before but have misplaced it. It is a valuable resource that I want to replace.
