From the Author:

Soprano Recorders for Family Fun

The recorder is a nifty little musical instrument. This predecessor of the flute has been around for hundreds of years. The modern plastic version, available in music stores, is inexpensive. Soprano recorders are about a foot long; the finger holes are comfortably spaced, even for children.

Maria Augusta Trapp, of Sound of Music fame, wrote in her inspiring family oriented book The Story of the Trapp Family Singers: "...The recorder is the ideal instrument for any adult whose childhood musical education has been neglected. If someone discovers on his fiftieth birthday that he should have taken piano or violin lessons while in school, he will hardly want to start then, for fear of not getting very far; but he will always miss it--to be able to 'make music' himself. That's where the recorder comes in handy. After six weeks of faithful practicing, even the oldest pupil can play folk tunes very nicely...There are untold riches in that little instrument."

Some people wonder about the pros and cons of piano vs. recorder. Both instruments are great to learn. There will be no confusion because the recorder and the piano are so different but both reinforce the same music reading skills. Children enjoy the opportunity to learn a wind instrument as well as the piano. (One definite advantage of the recorder is that it is much easier to carry around.)

For those who don't own a piano, the recorder is an affordable alternative. Lessons are unnecessary. Most children are ready for the recorder around age eight or nine, perhaps earlier if they already read music. And as Maria Trapp said, it's never too late to learn.

Much of the music written for recorder quickly becomes too difficult for children and for adults with no background in reading music. The Nine-Note Recorder Method uses only the nine easiest notes to play and simple rhythms. Not only is the music easy but it is almost entirely duets and trios. Folk songs, classic melodies, and Christmas carols are waiting for your family to experience together. What a fun way for the family to make music!

Bring "untold riches" to your family by purchasing soprano recorders for everyone and this fun book of two- and three-part songs. Soon your family will be making beautiful music together wherever you are.
