Each piece introduces a new note, beginning with first-octave B and progressing to second octave F-sharp. The compositions are constructed logically, using repeated thematic material to ensure success for the play. I challenge students to analyze each piece as they play, locating like and unlike phrases, while identifying form and dynamic markings. All of the selections have breath marks indicated. Note values and fingering patterns have been considered carefully so as not to be too demanding. Another unique attraction of these pieces is the diversity of musical styles. Students are exposed to a variety of music in both triple and duple meter. The titles are inspiring and thought provoking. Although the works are instrumental, students sometimes compose lyrics and sing while others play their recorders. The accompaniments complement and enhance the simple melodies.”
