Synopsis

My First Recorder Music Easy to Read, Easy to Play; Beginners to Intermediate by Roger Cawkwell

This is the ideal introduction to music for children and early learners of the recorder. The recorder is the first instrument that many children learn before they progress onto other instruments - brass, wind or even stringed. It is easy to make a sound and even simple pieces can sound impressive. This handy guide provides a range of traditional and modern music using standard notation, reflecting both the standard teaching pieces and some popular melodies. With a basic introduction to reading music, a simple how-to-play guide and step-by-step photos, children will have everything they need to start straightaway.

Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars | Not only for children | By Judy Brighton | I bought this book as an introduction to recorder, but found it to be helpful as a general guid to basic music terminology and theory. Although it's written for children, it was perfect for an adult beginner. The explanations are always easy to follow and the amount of information given at each step is just right to maintain interest. A great little book. * Amazon * 5.0 out of 5 stars | An excellent introduction to the recorder and to music generally | By Bill Clinton | This really is an excellent book. It goes through easy to follow stages starting with which end to blow into and progressing gradually to some pretty advanced stuff. It's well written, interest gin, progresses at a steady pace, and is not only a good introduction to playing the recorder, but a good overall introduction to music. I've been playing guitar for forty years, but I still came across a few things I didn't know. Highly recommended. * Amazon *

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
