The Recorder Resource Kit 1 is a beginning recorder method that has been used to help thousands of students learn to play the recorder.

It contains everything that the teacher needs for teaching a first-year recorder program: a teacher’s guide, games, practice bugs, note name mad minutes, assessment rubrics, piano/guitar chord symbols, Orff accompaniments, composition worksheets, and quizzes, recorder care, and recorder note name flashcards. The kit also includes student pages in Standard Notation AND in KidsNote Notation for you to copy for your students.

Students will learn how to care for the recorder as they study basic music theory concepts and practice with the fingering chart included in the kit. There are 38 songs in the book, including some duets and rounds that are carefully sequenced so that students will have success from the very first lesson. Students love to play along with the accompaniment tracks that are included and practicing at home tends to have more success in their practice time. Throughout the lessons, they also learn about famous composers and get the opportunity to play themes by them.
