Recorder from the Beginning
by John Pitts.
Recommended for children.

This series has been re-vamped with more tunes and coloured pictures. Book 1 is the least changed, with Book 2 and Book 3 progressively more different. There are matching books for teachers and pupils books with a bundled CD. (The CDs are good!)

I will supply the latest edition unless you specify otherwise.

The immediately previous versions, styled "New Edition" because they replaced the original, remain available, some with a "Classic Edition" sticker. They have blue and brown rather the black print. All the musical examples are the same as the first edition. I no longer hold stock of all the superceded versions. There are no new versions of the other titles.

There is now a full colour version of Treble Recorder from the Beginning. It is very different from the previous edition. (See below.)

Treble Recorder.
The New Full Colour Treble Recorder from the Beginning book retains some of the original tunes and includes treble and descant duets. It ends with a clear full fingering chart for descant and treble recorders. While primarily aimed at young descant players moving to the treble it includes enough theory to be suitable for those (usually adults) who are playing the recorder for the first time. Both will find the material valuable and the presentation attractive.This edition deserves to be a 'winner'.

Recorder Playing
by Steve Rosenberg
This is a straight forward and well thought out method with an emphasis on early music. The tunes are good (definitely no 'jingles'!) and there are many duets. The material goes up to G above the stave, with some 'black notes' omitted. There is though, a full fingering chart.
