Like Recorder Improvisation and Technique Book One, Book Two is designed to parallel and supplement the basic material in the Orff Schulwerk publications, and to spell out in detail how the sequence can best be applied to learning and teaching the recorder.

Book Two concentrates on the alto recorder, with improvisations, exercises, and appropriate repertoire. Part I begins with lessons transferring pentatonic fingering patterns to the alto instrument until the notation is thoroughly familiar. Then the major scales in F, C, G and Bb are elucidated by filling in the holes in the familiar pentatonic scales, through improvisation, exercises and repertoire in hexatonic and diatonic versions.

By Lesson 6, the student is improvising variations by ear. Starting with Lesson 7, the student begins a comprehensive understanding of the diatonic modes. The final two lessons on shifting-chord accompaniments and paraphony (parallel melodic progressions using fourths and fifths), are an open doorway to a musical life that embraces improvisation and composition.

About the Author:

Isabel McNeill Carley was a published composer, writer, editor and lifelong innovator and creative teacher of music. The first American Honors graduate of the Orff Institute in Salzburg, Austria, she was a founding member of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association. She established and edited for its first fifteen years AOSA's journal, The Orff Echo, and organized and instructed at Orff certification programs in the US and abroad. She composed works for piano, instrumental and vocal ensembles, performed in chamber-music consorts, and taught music for over fifty years to children and adults.

Carley's three-book Recorder Improvisation and Technique series is a classic, integrating recorder instruction with musicianship, improvisation and the Orff Approach. It is used successfully in Orff certification courses as well as classrooms.

Review:

Your recorder books are excellent ... completely in the spirit of the Schulwerk. --Gunild Keetman, co-creator with Carl Orff of the Orff-Schulwerk

On both soprano and alto recorder, 13 lessons review pentatonic keys, then diatonic modes and finally improvisation over chord changes....A wealth of material in a structured pedagogy for developing recorder technique. --Leslie Timmons, American Recorder Magazine
