I found the scale and arpeggio studies for clarinet (and adapted for saxophone by D. Hite) by Friedrich Demnitz very useful in learning these instruments. The studies are melodious and use the full range of the instrument, but they are not technically difficult. I assume that similar material is available for the recorder, and I wonder whether anyone could make any suggestions. Thank you.January 20, 2020 at 7:32 pm #939
What about the Rose studies? Might they be playable on recorder?

Have a look here. Quite a few recorder studies listed, with various grades.

Thank you for the justflutes list of recorder studies. Several of them are very suitable for my purposes.
As for the Rose studies, I might leave them alone for the time being. The ones I know were written for the clarinet, and the huge range of the clarinet would require extensive adjustments for the recorder, although parts of them could be played as they are. They are rewarding for the clarinet player, though.January 24, 2020 at 8:21 am #953
Also check out Aldo Bova. He has a few books listed on lulu.com and Amazon I think.

Thank you. The Aldo Bova material looks very good. I think I am now set for the next little while.January 26, 2020 at 11:29 pm #956

I thought about getting it but I need to see a sample of the scores to make sure its not above my playing level.

“The Charlton method for the recorder : a manual for the advanced recorder player”
Has scales and much more. A great book.January 29, 2020 at 10:52 am #963
Hmm it seems I’m unable to make any more posts…

I’ve been using “Advanced Recorder Technique” by Heyens/Bowen, published by Schott. It’s a mouthful, so to speak, I’m not that advanced with it. Somewhat less daunting, but still very worthwhile is “95 Dexterity Exercises and Dances for Recorders in F” by G. Rooda.
Mostly alto, plays with Balmain Baroque
