about

Anyone who has had to suffer through a beginner recorder player knows there are only so many times you can hear 'Hot Cross Buns' before your ears start to bleed. When my son turned 10 he was really into his recorder and I decided to write him a book of duets so we could play them together. The duets on this record (and also in the PDF sheet music attached as a bonus here) are fun, engaging and sometimes silly. But they are earnest explorations of the recorder and each one has a little gem of a lesson hidden inside for the curious young musician.

Listen to the first ten tracks to hear both of the parts together. And then play Part 1 along with the recordings of Part 2 in the second 10 tracks. Enjoy!

I am so grateful to soprano recorder virtuoso Tali Rubinstein for bringing this music to life in such a lively way.
