CD for the Windsongs Teachers Guide - E1234CD

Price: $5.98
SKU: E1234CD
Brand: EMPIRE
Product Code: E1234CD
Availability: In Stock

Arranged by Joe Berarducci to accompany the Windsongs Teachers Guide for Books 1, 2, 3 & 4.

This CD, containing all the pieces from the Windsongs Teachers Guide, was created to provide another stimulus for the development of recorder skills. It is not intended to be a substitute for live music-making.

The synthesized sounds chosen for the CD are at best an approximation of the sounds of the instrumentarium. In some instances, when a synthesized version was unavailable, a substitution has been made for the sounds of the instruments listed on the notated score.

The tempos on the CD are not slow, so playing along will require some facility with the melody.

With the exception of Track 12 (The B-A-G Concerto), each piece is performed the same way:
Intro: tambourine keeping the beat
(8 beats for pieces in 2/4, 6/8 or 4/4; 7 beats if there is a pickup)
(6 beats for pieces in 3/4; 5 beats if there is a pickup)
Piece: played through once with all instruments
Piece: played through twice more with the recorder sound omitted
(a few of the longer songs are performed only once)
