From Descant to Treble Part 1
From the Publisher"...this work is likely to become a standart work very quickly and is to be recommended to all schools where recorder studies are undertaken“ (Oliver James, Contact Magazine) A novel and comprehensive approach to transferring from the C to F instrument. 430 music examples include folk and national songs (some in two parts), country dance tunes and excerpts from the standart treble repertoire - Bach, Barsanti, Corelli, Händel, Telemann, etc. An outstanding feature of the book has proved to be Brian Bonsor's brilliantly simple but highly effective practice circles and recognition squares designed to give, in only a few minutes, concentrated practice on the more usual leaps to and from each new note and instant recognition of random notes. Quickly emulating the outstanding success of the descant tutors, these books are very popular even with those who normally use tutors other than the "Enjoy the Recorder" series.
taken from the foreword:
'This book aims to help proficient descant recorder players who are capable readers to transfer to treble. It teaches no rudiments and little, directly, in the way of techniquw, assuming that such information has already been acquired while learning descant.' Brian Bonsor
