'Choose Your Own Adventure' - from Recorder Songs (Book 1)
Recorder Songs (Book 1) is a collection of concert pieces for beginner recorder players. I'm kind of on a mission...to make the humble recorder sound amazing! Recorders can get such a bad rap these days but when used effectively they are such an amazing instrument for music education. This piece 'Choose Your Own Adventure' from Recorder Songs (Book 1) has 3 different ostinato parts with varying skill level. Students can choose to play each part in any order, choosing their own story line and path or it can be performed as a canon. This piece is also in my book Mallet Jam for tuned percussion and can be performed combined with classroom percussion as well. Options for improvising are also there as well as arranging. Find out more with a creative music workshop with the composer! To purchase the e-score book or to enquire about a workshop contact me via www.JamesMadsen.com.au.
