One of the most useful instruments for the classroom, the recorder is a wonderful way to introduce children to musicality. While professional musicians can find many nuances in playing the recorder, the instrument is straight forward enough for kids to produce affable sounds with only elementary instruction. The Woodwind and Brasswind is the ultimate music teacher resource with numerous plastic recorders to choose from along with complete sets of 30 to 40 recorders for the entire classroom. Browse top brands like Lyons, Yamaha, and Aulos for the set of recorders best suited for your students.
The popularization of the recorder in schools is due greatly to Carl Orff. A music teacher and composer, Carl Orff developed Orff-Schulwerk in the early 20th century with an emphasis on percussive and musical exploration for children. This popular methodology is still widely used today and has been greatly influential in the association of the recorder as a children’s instrument. Orff’s 5-volume book, "Music for Children" contains lots of recorder music for children and is still a popular resource for teachers.
Recorders are a wonderful way for young students to learn more about breathing, rhythm, and pitch. The soprano recorder is most common among kids but older student groups may benefit from the inclusion of alto or bass recorders for more complex music. Most recorder ensembles include a sopranino, soprano, alto, and tenor recorder.
The Woodwind and Brasswind offers sets like the Rhythm Band Four Recorder Package for a group of recorder players or for a single musician in need of a range of instruments. More fun than ever, recorders now come in fun and bright colors. Choose from translucent blue, pink, or purple recorders from Lyons and get the students even more excited about music. Purchase recorders individually or get a set for the classroom complete with a carrying case and cleaning rod. One particularly prominent manufacturer of recorders is Yamaha. From Drums to acoustic pianos and everything in between, Yamaha does it all. Among its many areas of high achievement are classroom music products. From recorders to portable keyboards to instructional literature, Yamaha’s quality control and pricing structure is among the musical equipment industry’s leaders.
Introduce recorders to your students and cultivate a love of music in a whole new generation!
