Recorder Resource Kit 1 

This is a beginning recorder method that has been used to help thousands of children to learn to play the recorder.  There is an introduction to the recorder and recorder consorts, helping children to learn that recorder is a real instrument!  Children will learn how to care for the recorder and basic music theory.  There are 38 songs in the book, carefully sequenced so that children will have success in the very first lesson.  Children love to play along with the accompaniment tracks that are included - and parents will find these performances enjoyable - not painful to listen to!  Children are invited to compose their own music - a variation for Hot Cross Buns and a B section for a Rondo. Children learn about famous composers and learn to play themes by them.  This kit includes a fingering chart. 

The Recorder Resource Kit contains everything that the teacher needs for teaching a first year recorder program: teacher's guide, games, practise bugs, note name mad minutes, assessment rubrics, piano/guitar chord symbols, tone bar accompaniments, composition, recorder care and recorder note name flashcards!

The Kit includes 42 student pages in standard notation AND 42 pages in kids note notation for you to copy for your students. In  “Kid Notes”  the letter name is imprinted directly on the note head. This helps weak readers to progress.  It’s preferable to having them pencil in letter names – with “Kid Notes” they still read rhythms and see note placement.

The 2018 Recorder Resource Kit includes all the printables AND the Digital Resources: PowerPoints, Smart Notebook files and QuickTime movies of all components of the Recorder Kit. 

With the Recorder Resource Kit you have many options for providing the music for your students:

  • Copy the reproducibles for your students from the kit.
  • Have students download the Learn and Play Recorder app.
  • Have students purchase the interactive iBook on iTunes:  Recorder Resource Student Book.
  • If you’re a subscriber to musicplayonline.com, students can use the student login and practice the songs in the recorder section.
  • $10 recorder packages are available from Themes & Variations – these include the student book/CD (or download of mp3s), and a quality recorder.  If you order 10+ we pay the tax and shipping.

This version of the Kit includes the Digital Resources: PowerPoints, Smart Notebook files and QuickTime movies of all components of the Recorder Kit.
