Ready, Steady Recorder! is a colourful Recorder tutor for early starters which guides children from the very beginning, including how to hold a recorder properly. Key symbols are explained at the outset and repeated throughout to encourage and aid learning. Notes are introduced slowly and clearly, enabling good technique and musical literacy.
There are plenty of short pieces with CD accompaniments at all stages, many of which have funny words or actions. Rhythms are clapped out, musical terms and symbols explained simply and games help promote understanding, all of which make this new book comprehensive yet enjoyable, easy to follow and fun.
