Recorder Karate 2

From Plank Road Publishing

Recorder Karate 2 is the much-requested second volume of the motivational recorder method and it picks up where Recorder Karate leaves off. This continuation has a lot more music and fully orchestrated accompaniments. The songs are in order of increasing difficulty, divided into logical sections, including 9 Black Belt Degrees. Like the first volume, the songs are designed to be played and tested with the belt reward system. This resource includes:

  • Review/Sequencing - Follow up and tune substitutions for both volumes.
  • Black Belt Levels - Nine arrangements of songs in sequence of technical challenges.
  • Advanced Music Beyond The Nine Belts - Song substitution options and additional levels for more advanced players.
  • Seasonal Music - Arrangements to use for holiday performances in keeping with the method style.
  • Concert Selections - Longer concert settings of some songs are provided, including an optional duet.
  • Big Bundle Of Extras - Bonus extras include I Can statements, Exit Tickets, Anchor Charts, and more.
