    Difficulty Level:
  • February 11, 2007 Too fast-paced for younger grades

    I inherited a third grade recorder program for which this book had been used by the previous teacher. I had never taught recorder to this grade level before, and thought that since she had been using the book, it must be effective. Rather than introducing standard notation immediately, it uses...

    a made-up version for the first few pages, then asks the kids to switch to standard notation in one jump. It tries to introduce too many concepts and finger combinations in a very short time, leaving my third graders frustrated and subsequently bored. I only meet with them once a week for 45 minutes, so the format doesn't work for me at all. I recently picked up a copy of "Recorder Excellence" by Bruce Pearson which is much more organized, sequential, and playable by third graders.
