Play – Analyze – Play some more
Students use their experiences playing the recorder to deepen their understanding of music. They then apply those understandings to learn to play better.
“IRMT delivers music theory without the terror that anything called “theory” ordinarily provokes…. students need not fear this book. At the same time, IRMT delivers solid theory using the standard terms and phrases of serious musicianship…. Students who successfully complete a study of the entire book will command a knowledge of sight reading, song writing and improvisation, time signatures, major and minor keys, chords, scales, harmonies, and (with the teacher’s and other students’ help) ensemble performance. No small feat for a 150-page book!” Rick Stevens, attorney and music aficionado
