Written for general music classes, group and private instruction, and self-learners, Playing the Soprano Recorder provides teachers and students with a sequential and musical approach to learning Western music notation and soprano recorder playing. In addition, each lesson provides opportunities to apply, in creative ways, the notation and concepts they learn and also to support the development of creative thinking and the tools needed for composing music in Western notation. This classroom text can be used successfully in multiple and varied settings of teaching and learning, making collaborations between teachers in school, private, after school enrichment, and outreach programs easy. Usage is flexible; as excellent as a college text in teacher preparation and adult general music classes as in third - eighth grade classes due to the "go to your own pace" comprehensive instructional format of the book. Performance of the beautiful ensemble pieces is a natural and desired outcome of "players" learning.

Playing the Soprano a comprehensive recorder book for beginners of all ages and groups of all sizes. The author presents not only music fundamentals and recorder techniques with a wealth of well-chosen repertoire but she also integrates activities to foster creative thinking and good teaching strategies. While the music literature is extensive, including works from folk music, jazz style to opera tunes and more, the piano accompaniments are simple yet very expressive...This is the book most music teachers would love to use. The lessons are attractive, logical, well organized and the content maximizes opportunities for musical learning.... The result is most musical in expression and with a sound pedagogy.--Dr. Cecilia Wang, associate professor of Music Education, University of Kentucky
