Journey Around the Globe with Recorder


by Darla Meek


24 pedagogy lessons for teaching the soprano recorder. Recorder playing is an integral part of the music classroom experience in these lessons. The first two notes taught are G and E. Notes are introduced individually, in sequence, and in a musical context.

The songs selected come from a variety of cultures. Students will learn about the culture from singing the songs, playing the music and games, and participating in the dances.
