Recorder Debut - James Rae

Reading time: 2 min. James Rae

All of these pieces for young recorder players in their earliest stages of learning can be performed as a solo (descant recorder) or in unison with others. Some have an optional 2nd part for either descant or treble recorder and may also serve as ensemble material.

Whilst written specifically for the recorder and addressing the challenges beginners would encounter, a special section is included of four pieces which are "key friendly" for beginners on most instruments and are therefore ideal pieces for mixed instrumental groups. These same four pieces appear in books for other instruments in the Debut series.
