Horsham GB
My two daughters (grade 2 & grade 1 recorder) picked up the music and away they played.
It would be better if the book came with a free download of the backing track rather than a cd.

Rating Review
Customer Rating This book met with a very enthusiastic response from my 7 -8 year old recorder players and older beginners. Well suited to mixed age-group ensembles as the top part plays the tune, the middle part uses only three notes and the lower part provides simple harmony. The only drawback is that all carols are in the key of G major, but in some situations this could be an advantage.

Customer Rating Brilliant cd. Easy to read with easier parts for all recorder abilities.

Customer Rating A super book to give a sense of acheivement to players when they play as a group in parts.The melodies are also comparitively easy. Perfect for encouraging beginners.
