    I was excited to order this because I was looking forward to playing along with the harpsichord tracks. I was expecting a well rounded intro to the alto recorder - some instruction, fingerings, good basic tunes, building to a point where you knew all the notes and could play something mildly...

    challenging. What I found was the instruction consists a fingering chart and how to hold the recorder. That's it. The majority of tunes are simple 1-2 line exercises and only covers notes for the left hand. If you want the rest of the notes you have to get Vol 2, I guess. And it's only a 14 page book. To me not worth almost $30 + shipping. I can't comment on the CD because I sent it all back without playing it.
