An Introduction to Playing the Recorder is a unique approach to beginning recorder instruction. It is a one-of-a-kind method that draws from the vast repertoire of classical music. This book teaches familiar melodies from composers such as Bach, Brahms, Beethoven, and Dvorak, which not only teaches recorder technique, but also develops and nurtures a love for beautiful music and music making.

Print Music

How Sweet the Sound Studios strives for excellent music to be available to all musicians, regardless of the instrument that they choose to play. Many of our sheet music selections are arrangements of classical works for the genre’s latest newcomer, the saxophone. Fueled by the desire to play works written before the saxophone was invented, music by composers such as Bach and Beethoven will be artfully arranged for saxophone players to enjoy.
