Also If anyone could give me the notes to 'reflection' in the movie mulan or 'A whole new world' Aladdin would be great. ASAP

Why not try Bach's Bourree from Lute Suite No.1 in e minor? It's not too difficult and sounds great on recorder. I use it to wow people when I perform. Here's the sheet music and Good Luck!

Here's a video of it. She does it in it's original style and then jazz. I'm not that into jazz but I have to admit she does a good job.

I would play something baroque. The Handel recorder sonatas are especially nice, but only if you have good technique and tone. As for the Disney songs, I would suggest purchasing one of the songbooks. These are usually pretty cheap. How they would sound on recorder, however, is an entirely different question.

And if you do play Bourree, you might consider swinging it like Ian Anderson. While jazz recorder doesn't really exist for obvious reason, you'll get some laughs.

If you need sheet music for the Handel Sonatas, you can find it (and more at IMSLP) here:

Look for the sonatas labelled "flauto dolce," as these are the ones that were originally written for recorder.

Corgicrazed, if you are wondering, your jazz recorder player was adapting Jethro Tull's Bouree for her instrument. That can be found here:

Ian Anderson rules!
