Customer Reviews

The CD is of very good quality and fun to play along with.
A Reader
This book very gently introduces the reader to reading sheet music, and corresponding finger positions.
Gerald Henthorn
This book was just what my grandaughter needed to help her learn how to play the recorder.

I bought 4 recorder seft-study books and I regard this as the best recorder book. There are a lot of good songs to practice.

A really easy introduction to playing songs that sound good right from the start. Painless way to learn to read music. The accompanying CD works well with separable recorder and accompaniment.

This book quickly gets the reader to play simple but imprssive enough music to get this person confident in one's abilities and interested enough to continue.

It also does a good job in easing a beginner into reading basic musical notation by starting with a more simply and intuitive version of it.

My only complaint is that the difficulty of the exersize passages picks up very sharply about half way through with no excersizes suggested that will get one's skill up to par. Playing earlier passages over and over simply does not do it. As a result, I had to look for the excersize information elsewhere.

"Recorder Fun" contains an excellent choice of songs. The CD is of very good quality and fun to play along with. I used this book and CD to teach 2 of my grandchildren to play the recorder. They finished the book and we gave a final concert for our extended family! These resources teach you a lot about the language of music as well as how to play the recorder. I just wish they would publish one like it for alto/bass recorders.

While this is a great beginner book it is not a good choice for an Alto recorder. The fingering and key of music is different than the saprano and tenor. Wish I had known this little tidbit before I bought it.Otherwise the choice of songs and teaching method of reading notes, rests and rythm is great.

This book is good for getting use to a few notes. I was hoping to see scales in this book which is very important if a player wants to develop more as far as theory is concerned. I also noticed that the music stayed mostly in the key of C. This could be a problem since a lot of Celtic recorder music uses other key signatures like G. This booklet does include a fingering chart for all the notes you will probably not use in the included songs but will use later on with other music.

I am recently retired and was looking for a new hobby. My friend suggested I learn to play the recorder.
Recorder Fun has been a delightful resource. I was able to play a decent tune in a very short time. I have even learned to
read music! A skill that has eluded me for many many years! The CD is fun to play along with. I highly recommend this method
to learn recorder.

This is a great book for the beginning player. I haven't played music for many years, and have never been able to sight read music. This book has helped me a lot in learning to read. The CD is also a great help to those who play by ear.
