on March 16, 2016
As a recorder method book, I would argue that it falls a little flat in comparison to others one might find on the market (like the Trapp Family Singers book). As a literature supplement for the beginning-intermediate recorder student, however, one would be hard-pressed to find a book with a breadth of musical excerpts contained herein.
Where this book really shines is in its abundance of 2-part and 3-part adaptations of tunes. It can be terribly tricky to find music that is both didactically suitable AND aurally pleasing. This book amply supplies that need.
Summary: There are better tutorials in other books, but the excerpts and arrangements contained in this one make it well worth having in your library. A solid purchase.
