A superb collection of classical favourites, show tunes and Latin-American dances, as well as ragtime and enticing new pieces by John Pitts, arranged and graded for Recorder players of any age.
Designed to be used alongside the best-selling Treble Recorder From The Beginning tutor series. Pieces begin using the first eight notes taught in the tutor book, before steadily increasing. The pieces themselves are absorbing and exciting, offering inspiration and incentive to develop new skills and rhythmic awareness. You will also find eight duets - a superb chance to experience the wonders of small-ensemble performance, either with a teacher or a fellow pupil!
This CD edition features a disc of exciting and stylish backing tracks for every one of the pieces. The recorded accompaniments will enhance any level of practice and performance, increasing the enjoyment whether played in school or at home.
This is an excellent book and having the CD as well is a great help. I'm very much a beginner but could play some of the pieces straight away and have now learned some of the others quite easily. Anonymous

Nice music but disappointing that all except 8 have the solo part included on the backing track. Optional diet pieces are good but none of them have backing track without the solo parts. Anonymous
