For value-packed recorder fun at your fingertips, here is a seasonal collection of 12 expertly written arrangements for recorders with accompanying Orff instruments, percussion and piano parts. All parts are reproducible. Difficulty levels range from easy to intermediate, beginning with a variety of creative “B-A-G” songs. Melodies and rhythms become more difficult as notes are added to these progressive tunes for more challenge as the year goes on. Young performers are exposed to a diversity of musical styles ranging from classical, blues, swing to country, Latin and Broadway. And there's more! The enclosed CD provides tracks with and without the recorder part for both classroom and performance options. Keep student interest high with exciting, motivating and hip tracks that accompany the simpler, age-appropriate recorder parts. A winning combination! For Gr. 4-6.
