Recorder Boppers came into being because David Moses had a group of young recorder pupils with a very wide range of ability and a short span of attention. These pieces needed to spark their enthusiasm and keep it aflame. Many years on Recorder Boppers is still one of the most popular resources used by teachers intent on passing their love of music on to their pupils
Starters Plus Edition
The Starters Plus pack contains a book for teachers, photocopiable music and a CD with 16 pieces of music written and recorded in a wide range of styles. There are two recorded versions of each piece, with and without the recorder part. Starters Plus contains an additional CD of technical Warm Up routines.
Teachers find these 16 simple pieces easy to use, pupils find they are fun to play and sound like ‘proper’ music. In the words of one critic, “This is not kids’ music, but kids love it”.
No piece contains more than four notes BAGE or CAGE, some have only one note.
To avoid the frustrations that cause so many learners to give up recorder after just one year, 14 WARM UP pieces have been added to make light work of establishing and maintaining a good playing position and technique.
