Recorder Excellence Teacher Edition



The fun, comprehensive, student-friendly curriculum of Recorder Excellence will turn every class into an absolute success – a wonderful feeling.  The Recorder Excellence Teacher Edition includes easy to use lesson guides, practical hints, and innovative teacher tools that will help you seamlessly integrate playing, singing, theory, history, ear training, composition, and improvisation into your music classes. 

To offer maximum flexibility and page-for-page value, Recorder Excellence is divided into two parts:  Part One covers core skills, and is perfect for general music recorder units that are part of a larger curriculum.  Part Two expands on basic skills, giving teachers the opportunity to use the recorder as the core of one to two years of general music study.
