'Recorder for Beginners: The Tudor Way!' by Paul Harris (Pupil's Book)
Recorder for Beginners: The Tudor Way! by Paul Harris – the brand new recorder tutor from Jaywood Press.
“If you’d like a method from the beginning, but really firmly in the early music tradition, then this is a very nice place to start” – Sarah Jeffery, Team Recorder
"The recorder has, for centuries, been one of the world’s most popular instruments. It was born in medieval times but was extremely popular in Tudor times — King Henry VIII was a very keen player!
So, in keeping with the recorder’s popularity in those times, here is a new and fun
tutor set (almost entirely) in those wonderfully colourful Tudor times. It takes the recorder player from absolute beginner to about Grade 1 standard.
Along this engaging journey, players will meet many characters and experiences from Tudor times and a number of works by contemporary composers (and some maybe just a little bit later, too). The book is written to be for individual, group or class teaching and for all ages.
If you’re about to begin this book, I hope you’ll find it most entertaining and enjoyable and I also hope it will initiate an exciting new experience for a great number of new recorder players." – Paul Harris
