I have found this book just perfect for my needs. The best part of this book is that the pieces are arranged brilliantly so that as you work your way through the book, you are systematically challenged by more difficult tunes and notes in the higher register almost without knowing it. I love the tunes and the variety of composers. The man who arranged the pieces must really know the recorder and what constitutes increasing difficulty for the player. I have not one complaint -- which is unusual for me!

This book was just what I wanted. If you like classical music you will like it. There are well known composers such as Mozart, Haydn, and Vivaldi as well as those not so well known. This book is a must for beginners as well as more advanced recorder players.

As what I would say a decent above beginner but not expert recorder player I found this book helpful. It most from easy to advanced in difficulties and was challenging at the end. would recommend this for recorder players who want to move beyond being a beginner to a new level of play

This book contains a great selection of classical pieces. Not necessarily original recorder music, but music that is arranged well and sounds natural to the recorder. I really like how the selections are organized in order of difficulty and get progressively harder as you work through the book. The first few pieces have only a small number of notes and can even be played by an early beginner. Each page dials up the difficulty just a notch, and the melodies are lovely. A fantastic supplement to a teach-yourself course! Composers include Praetorius, Corelli, Bach, Beethoven, Haydn, Handel, Mozart, Grieg, and others.

LOVE THIS! The usual suspects of the baroque repertoire - useful to have in your collection - great editions of classical favorites which are reasonably easy to play to stretch your boundaries - beginner and intermediate.

... I am cheating a little and using this once in a while for my flute sight-reading practice and enjoying the challenge. Great for testing one's embouchure, articulation and flexibility as one progresses.

Recommend.

The book is good for the beginners to advanced players. The repertoire is assorted. I use to play flute and piccolo and it works fine.

The book arrived in fine shape. I found a lot of the songs too difficult for my upper beginner or lower middle level playing so that means I have a lot of practicing to do!

This book is really great. It takes an instrument that is generally thought of as a kid's toy and makes it into something great.

I purchased a copy of this book. A little while ago. Some of the pieces were somewhat too challenging for for me. But the compilation itself is excellent. I would deffinitely recommend this book to any beginer and intermediate recorder player. I am giving this book a five star review.
