Product Description

Product Description

Recorder From The Beginning: Pupil's Book 1 (2004 Edition) is the full-colour revised edition of John Pitts' best-selling recorder course.

The eight extra pages in Book 1 have allowed for some new tunes and rounds, whilst retaining the well-known favourites that have helped to make the scheme such an enduring success.

This is the book we all learned from as children and is still, successfully, teaching today's youth how to play the Recorder.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good to get you up and running 5 April 2001
Format:Paperback
This recorder tuition book is better for children wishing to play the descant recorder. It had clear fingering diagrams and progressivley works up to playing a decent tune, but is only really for the complete beginner. A good start up tool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for the younger beginners. 13 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback
I bought this book to start learning the recorder for myself. It's a good book and definitely the right choice if you've got a kid learning the instrument but if you're about 18+ (or younger depending on whether you've played instruments before) you may be better off getting something more advanced. I finished and mastered most of the songs in here in a day haha. It's a great book for children though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recorder from the Beginning Book 1 5 Mar 2013
By S Riaz HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As the title suggests, this is really a book for the beginner. It has a straightforward and easy to follow approach, which covers everything from how to hold the instrument, how to play basic notes, to introducing simple tunes. It is clearly laid out, so you can easily help your child learn the notes - or they can learn themselves if they are old enough to follow the text. There are lots of new tunes and also well known ones, including favourites such as "Hot Cross Buns" and "Old MacDonald". Once your child has mastered this book there are further books in the series, which gradually become harder. However, for a first book this is hard to beat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recorder from the Beginning for Old and Young 31 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for me so I could help my grand-daughter to learn to play the recorder. I am busy practising before I start with her! It is so easy, but as I never learned to read music I am taking it slowly!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Start 19 Feb 2010
By NC10
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My daughter's school recommended this book. My 7 yr old found this book easy to follow with clear written instructions and diagrams. As a beginner's guide with no recorder experience, it is very basic and easy for the children to follow by themselves and for the teachers and parents to teach. We found the book very helpful and made learning the recorder fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for children starting to learn recorder 19 May 2011
By Beansmummy TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my son who has started recorder lessons with his whole class at school (year 3). This was the required book. He worked through it in advance and very quickly mastered the first few notes, but it is written so that even with just one note there is a 'tune' to clap out, sing the words to, and play. It therefore gives a great sense of achievement from the first page.

It also teaches a child the basics of reading music, gradually introducing new symbols etc, and by the end of the book they have managed to play tunes in groups, as rounds, and solo.

Most children will progress very quickly; after 3 weeks I'm now buying the second book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teacher recommends 25 Oct 2011
By Deb
Format:Paperback
The teacher uses the teachers version of this and wanted the pupil to have a copy also. The fact that the teacher uses it, is good enough for me, she's not going to use a rubbish book!!! The content is simple, the first few tunes only having one note in them, perfect for beginners!
