Bring out your students’ inner Recorder Monster with this cleverly written recorder method by Mari Schay. The Recorder Monster method uses familiar tunes with silly lyrics that have a huge appeal to beginning recorder students. The student book contains all Recorder Monster songs, fingering and rhythm exercises, the rhythm and pitch worksheets, and a goals section for each student to fill in at the beginning of each unit.
