Children's Recorder Method Volume 1 composed by Michael Jon Clarke and Sigurlina Jonsdottir. For Recorder (Soprano). Saddle-stitched, Methods. Children. Beginning. Book/CD Set. 72 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.98521BCD).

ISBN 9780786650965. Children. 11.75 x 8.75 inches.

Mel Bay's Children's Recorder Method is a new recorder method which stands on its own. There is an imaginative accompaniment CD which makes even the simplest one-note exercise into an attractive experience for the young student, and there are lyrics to all the songs. Large notes are used throughout and each melody is attractively illustrated. Clear and concise instructions introduce technique and notation concepts gradually. These books use many Icelandic songs and folk songs, some of which may even date from the time of Leif Eriksson! This gives the method a unique flavor and allows the introduction of many unusual melodic and rhythmic elements. The first book is based on the six easiest notes on the recorder and the accompaniment will help the student happily gain a firm rhythmic feeling, and above all, have fun while learning.
