Save by getting the Recorder Package!
This package features Recorder Express by Artie Almeida and the Yamaha YRS-20B Blue Soprano Recorder!
Bundled together is the colorful Yamaha YRS-2BG Blue Soprano Recorder with Recorder Express by Artie Almeida!
Have a fun and stylish recorder by getting Yamaha’s translucent, Cotton Candy, Blue recorder. These chic recorders have a 3-piece construction and Baroque-English fingering. The 3-piece design can make them easy to clean and allow students to remove the head when they’re practicing their fingering. The bundle comes complete with a carrying bag and fingering chart. It does not come with a cleaning rod, and since the recorder is translucent, we recommend purchasing a cleaning rod separately to keep it looking great from inside and out.
About the Book:
By Artie Almeida
To start new students off right, the Recorder Express book covers vocabulary, technique, beginner music theory, rhythm and provides tips and tricks through its 120 pages of exercises and melodies. To captivate children’s interest, the book uses a locomotive theme and presents new notes in train car pictures. To have something to fit everyone’s taste buds, the book uses a variety of song from pop to folk and includes some originals too.
Take learning one step further by purchasing the CD separately.
