From Plank Road Publishingby John Riggio
An Exciting Resource For Your Recorder Program
Teaching those first notes on recorder doesn't have to be so tedious. John Riggio has created an exciting collection that will add pizzazz to those first lessons, using the contemporary styles and sounds that have made his music so popular in Music K-8 magazine.
These eight songs will give you tools for spicing up each step of the way, including cool originals that feature first just "B" then "B and A." John has also done rockin' new arrangements of some of the most commonly used BAG tunes, "Hot Cross Buns," "Merrily We Roll Along," and "Go Tell Aunt Rhody." That way, your students can have the extra inspiration of these fresh settings as they learn to master their first songs.
Rounding out the collection are three tunes that will give your players new ways to flex their BAG skills, with recordings that they will ask to hear time and again. As with all of John's recordings, they feature the newest, hottest grooves, performed by John and by the world-class players that are always a part of Plank Road Publishing products.
What a great way to generate excitement for your first recorder classes. And if you are using Recorder Karate, these songs can fit seamlessly into your curriculum, giving you the possibility of new rewards at the front end of the program.
