Recorder31 Day 7 | Paul Harris introduces 'Recorder for Beginners: The Tudor Way'

Earlier this year, The Early Music Shop's publishing division, Jaywood Press, was delighted to publish a new beginner recorder tutor by renowned music educator Paul Harris. For today's Recorder31 treat, join the author to explore the book in more detail and find out more about why it's the perfect, fun way to learn the recorder!

In Recorder for Beginners: The Tudor Way, players are guided from the very earliest stages of playing, using fragments of music from the Tudor era. Featuring extracts of tunes by Byrd, Purcell and music attributed to Henry VIII himself, the book transports players to a Grade 1 standard with tutorials and guidance on fingerings, hand positions and reading music. 

Ideally suited to individual, group and class teaching, the book is expertly crafted and well laid out. With a teacher's book containing piano accompaniments also available, it's the complete package for recorder education.

And best of all, it's great fun!
