Hi all,

I've just bought myself a recorder but have not yet got a book on how to play it as all the ones I find are aimed at young children. I'm after a book that more suits my reading ability. I'm 41.

I have found Basic Recorder Lessons by Ralph Wm. Zeitlin Omnibus Edition to be the best 'learn recorder' book for those of us over the age of ten. It is still aimed at the younger student, but does not have the childishness in it. The Omnibus Edition includes books 1-3 as well as an extra song book all in one binding. It costs about 20 U.S.D.

Not knowing where you are with music reading, I would suggest the Hugh Orr series. It comes in 2 volumes. The first volume covers exersizes for the low register, and the second applies to the upper. There is a set for the the C recorder, and one for F. Just about every company that specializes in selling recorders is familiar with these, and usually has them in stock.
