Recorder Excellence is not just another recorder method. It's a complete full-color, student-friendly music curriculum, offering standards-based music study. Every student is unique, and every school music program has different needs. To give students, teachers, and parents maximum flexibility and page-for-page value, Recorder Excellence is divided into two parts:
Part One covers core skills, and is perfect for general music recorder units that are part of a larger curriculum.
Part Two expands on basic skills and gives teachers the opportunity to use the recorder as the core of one to two years of general music study. The expanded scope offered by Part Two also makes Recorder Excellence ideal for more serious students.
