There are over 50 favorite folksongs, famous classical melodies, songs from various cultures, and many fun-to-play original songs in this one book, appearing in order of level of difficulty. Many songs have lyrics to encourage students to sing alone or with others when not playing the Recorder.
Chord names are included for a guitarist or pianist. There are many opportunities for ensemble playing throughout the book: duets, SOLO and ALL designations, a round, and a three-part ensemble. In addition to the master fingering chart on the inside-front-cover, a fingering chart of every new note appears on the page where the new notes are introduced.
