Recorder Improvisation and Technique Book 2

Intermediate for Alto and Soprano Recorder

By Isabel McNeill Carley
Book
Like Book One, Book Two is designed to parallel and supplement the basic material in the Orff Schulwerk publications, and to spell out in detail how the sequence can best be applied to learning and teaching the recorder.Book Two concentrates on the alto recorder, with improvisations, exercises, and appropriate repertoire. Part I begins with lessons transferring pentatonic fingering patterns to the alto instrument until the notation is thoroughly familiar. Then the major scales in F, C, G and Bb are elucidated by "filling in the holes" in the familiar pentatonic scales, through improvisation, exercises and repertoire in hexatonic and diatonic versions. Part II introduces the other diatonic modes in a similar fashion, concluding with shifting chord techniques and examples of paraphony - parallel melodic progressions using fourths and fifths - treated in historical and improvisatory contexts.
