. I’m brand spanking new to the recorder, and I’m very confused with the repertoire for the instrument. Pieces ranging in difficulty that is. I’ve played guitar for about 5 years, and have a well understanding of theory, reading sheet music, and developing technique. But I have no idea which piece I should learn first to get going in baroque style pieces. If some of you could offer some advice on what piece I should learn first that would be amazing! Personally I prefer pieces written by J.S. Bach, or Mozart if it’s possible to learn one of their pieces this early on that is.
This site has gotten very quiet of late. My advice is to post your question on one or more of the Facebook pages devoted to recorders. You are much more likely to get multiple answers there at: 1) the recorder cafe, 2) flauto dolce, recorder, flute a bec, 3) flute a bec, and 4) recorder players n enthusiasts. Of these, #1 and #4 seem to be the most lively.
