Recorder Plus
TM by Sandy Feldstein and Larry Clark

Welcome to The Yamaha Advantage Recorder Plus TM

This method will teach you to play the recorder by having fun singing and playing your favorite songs. After learning
to play the recorder, you may wish to learn to play a band or orchestral instrument. To help you make your choice,
The Yamaha Advantage Recorder Plus Method includes information about many instruments.
TM

The optional CD accompaniment for this book is recorded by a great band. The CD will also give you an example of
how your instrument should sound, as well as the other instruments you might like to play. It will also provide hours
of enjoyable play-along experiences. (CD available separately.)

Have a great time making music.

The instruments of today’s band and orchestra are divided into four INSTRUMENT FAMILIES.
The WOODWIND FAMILY (not all are made of wood), the BRASS FAMILY, the PERCUSSION FAMILY and the
STRING FAMILY. Throughout this book we will take a closer look at some instruments from each of the families.

28 The FLUTE, which is made of metal, is a member of the woodwind family


and plays the high notes in band and orchestra music.
The flute is played by blowing across the open hole in the
mouthpiece, much like you might blow across the top
of a bottle to make a sound.

The air that goes into the instrument vibrates to


produce the flute sound.
To play sounds (notes) that are higher or
lower, you release or depress the keys.

58 The SNARE DRUM is made of wood or metal. It has a drum head


on both the top and bottom. It also has wire snares which
lightly touch the bottom drum head. It is played by
striking the top head of the drum with a stick.
The head vibrates and sends the vibrations
through the drum to the bottom head which
also vibrates, causing the snares to vibrate
which produces the snare drum sound.

64 The TROMBONE, which is made of brass, is a member of


the brass family. Like the trumpet, it is played by buzzing
the lips in the mouthpiece. The vibration of the lips
sends vibrations into the instrument to produce
the trombone sound. To play sounds
(notes) that are higher or lower,
you move the slide in or out.

70 The VIOLIN is made of wood with four strings attached. It is a


member of the string family and plays the high notes in the
orchestra. It is played by plucking the strings with the finger
(like a guitar) or by drawing a bow across them. The strings
vibrate to produce the violin sound. To play sounds
(notes) that are higher or lower, you depress the
strings at different points.
