Soprano Recorder Classroom Method Book
By Chris Judah-Lauder
A refreshing, hands-free-approach recorder method for classroom or individual use. There is a strong emphasis on improvisation and student-created variations and forms. Most songs are 8 to 16 measures in length with many duets included. A larger staff font is used to help children stay focused.
Sequence of pitches taught: B, A, G, low E, high C, high D, low D, F#, low C, low F and high E.
