Teach Sopranino Recorder (Lesson Plan Format) - Updated Version!

FREE Recorder eBook for music teachers!

When I was a music teacher, I loved teaching the Sopranino recorder. The sopranino recorder is a good starting musical instrument for small hands. The challenge then was finding suitable teaching materials to match  the needs of my music students.  Maybe I had not searched hard enough, but it was then that I decided to go ahead and develop my own teaching materials like music, fingering charts and lesson plans. I believe there are teachers like me, who have this difficult experience. Hence I have written an  electronic version  of the lesson plans to share with all who wants it. This is the first Sopranino eBook in the world I believe, at the time of writing (March 2002) - and is being updated and improved upon as time goes by. Currently we also have the .PDF version. I will appreciate FEEDBACK. Let me know if the eBook is useful - or if there are any sections that are not easy to follow. I will try my best to answer your queries.
