          This is an excellent method for an adult player with some musical experience. It contains sound advice on playing in different registers, alternative fingerings etc. The spiral binding is also a boon as the book lays flat on your music stand.

          A very thorough manual suitable for the beginner Treble Recorder player through to grade eight and above. The manual is in two parts the first part providing a thorough grounding in technique:the sustaining and articulating of notes and their registers; alternative fingerings; a basic introduction to vibrato; scales, arpeggios and technical studies. The second half has an interesting introduction to repertoire and style covering early fingering systems, articulation, improvisation and ornamentation in renaissance and baroque music, the French violin clef and some avant garde techniques. I have used this book for many years either for adult beginners, or as a thorough technical manual for players of grade four - eight standard. It is particularly strong in the tuition of the various forms of articulation which are used in both modern, baroque and renassance music. Every serious recorder player should have a copy of this book on their music stand.

          A book for intermediate to advanced players and teachers rather than beginners. As the author says in his Introduction: "This book is intended primarily for recorder players who wish to attain sufficient technical ability to explore the large repertoire of solo and chamber music for the treble recorder, and secondly for those who teach the recorder in schools and elsewhere [...]." Part 1 contains graded exercises on recorder technique, while Part 2 deals with certain historical features of recorder development and more specialised aspects of recorder playing (e.g. avant garde techniques). There are ample musical examples to accompany and illustrate each particular point of technique, and a valuable selection of original material from Renaissance and Baroque composers. This is an affordable resource for any serious recorder player in a well printed, clearly laid-out A4 comb-bound format.

          A very detailed book that provides the serious recorder player with a very good method from beginner standard all the way to Grade 8+. Well worth the money and would definitely recommend it.
