Anfor Recorder Method - 7 Easy Steps composed by Nitka. For Sopranino Recorder/Alto Recorder. Recorder Methods. Published by Anfor Editions (MM.ASL0012).

This book has been designed specifically for the beginner with little or no previous musical knowledge, whose immediate desire is to play his (or her) favorite tunes on the recorder. Its outstanding feature is that tunes which have become popular in the United States are used exclusively as instructive material. The approach has been determined by a practical consideration, namely, that the beginner will be most responsive if the presentation involves music with which he or she is already familiar. By means of well-known melodies, selected to illustrate new tones and musical symbols, which are gradually introduced through each of seven easy steps, the beginners interest is encouraged and sustained. Thus, initial desire is appeased, explanations can be reduced to a minimum and the stultifying effects of working on drawn-out technical exercises avoided. This procedure, moreover, is invaluable because it tends to sharpen the beginners critical listening faculty as he attempts to play tlie tunes that are familiar to him. I am fully convinced through this method, the beginner is provided with real incentives that will assuredly hasten his progress, because lie will have derived satisfaction and joy while learning to play the recorder. - Arthur Nitka.
