Soprano recorder
Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3337).

Item Number: MO.MMOCD3337
ISBN 159615313X.

A method compiled and edited by Erich Katz, Dean of the American Recorder movement and the man responsible for the enormous recorder renaissance in the U.S.A. that started in the late 20th century and continues to this day. Here is a super course for learning to play every type of recorder - the sopranos, altos, tenors and even the less frequently used sopranino, and bass recorder. Each lesson is built around a series of duets and trios, beginning with the simplest of folk songs to more elaborate music of Bach. Your fellow player is LaNoue Davenport, recorder virtuoso and former performer with the acclaimed Noah Greenberg Pro Music group.

Includes a high-quality printed solo part and a compact disc containing the accompaniments for each piece.

    I have been playing 'Alto' and "Soprano' recorders for some time and recently purchased a Yamaha 'Tenor'. I have found this book invaluable for learning "Tenor' recorder whilst at the same time using the book to consolidate (enhance) my 'Alto' and 'Soprano' playing. The pieces are short, yet varied and...

    interesting and very beneficial to any player aspiring to become capable on multiple (SAT) instruments. The play along (example) disc is excellent and has helped me improve many critical aspects of my playing. The example player 'LaNoue Davenport' plays very accurately (as written) and has beautiful tone. An excellent and inspiring resource for those whom are serious about taking responsibility for their musical evolution...
