Recorder Works

From Plank Road Publishing

by John Riggio

This collection is designed to provide a highly motivational supplement to any method you are using with your students. The careful design and incremental approach would also make this a good collection to use with beginning players if you prefer to design your own method of study.

The recordings are exciting with styles right out of the Top 40, guaranteed to keep student interest high while they are learning. The players on these state-of-the-art recordings are top professionals, and they are recorded and mixed with the same sense of detail you have come to expect from Plank Road Publishing. And when synthesizers are used, the sounds are fresh and appropriate to the song, not merely imitating another instrument.

The Teacher's Handbook features reproducible student parts as well as a reproducible fingering chart for the notes used. The audio recording contains two performances of each selection, one full performance with a professional playing the recorder parts, and a second one featuring just the accompaniment tracks.

The six original songs in the collection (and the notes they use) are:

  • BA BA Blues (B,A)
  • Agent BAG (B,A,G)
  • Vision Groove (B,A,G,C)
  • Daydreaming (B,A,G,C,D)
  • Summer Walk (B,A,G,C,D,E (low E))
  • The Rhythm CAGE (C,A,G,E (high E))
