This is a really nice book for students as young as second grade. It's set up like a workbook and the illustrations can be colored in by the students. Solfege syllables and rhythm syllables (ta, ti-ti, etc) are used and the staff is introduced. Just the notes B, A, and G are learned, but there are many songs and activities included. - Kathy

Windsongs by Birthe Kulich and Joe Berarducci is a progressive method for soprano recorder - for individual or classroom instruction. This is the first in a sequential series of six books leading from the first steps in recorder playing to musical literacy and the threshold of consort playing. Each book in the series serves as a workbook as there are tasks and exercises for the children to complete.

Each book builds upon the last, adding the notes in a logical sequence. The series uses sol-fa syllables (mi re do in Book 1) and rhythm syllables (ta and ti ti in Book 1) and leads to reading staff notation. There are places for students to draw notes and other written activities. A combination of both English and French songs which draw on the rich heritage of Canadian folk songs are used.

For ages 6 to 12. 
Range of notes: B-A-G.
