This a colourful recorder tutor which guides children from the very beginning, including how to hold a recorder properly. Key symbols are explained at the outset and repeated throughout to encourage and aid learning. Music notes are introduced slowly and clearly, enabling good technique and musical literacy.

There are plenty of short pieces with jazzy piano or CD accompaniments at all stages and many of them have funny words or actions. Rhythms are clapped out, musical terms and symbols explained simply and games help promote understanding, all of which make this new book comprehensive yet enjoyable, easy to follow and fun!

And the best news of all is that the teacher doesn’t have to be a recorder player or a musician – just one step ahead of the children!

Musically good, and lots of fun. Review by Anon (Musicroom.com)
Star Rating
This book is an excellent alternative to Red Hot recorder, and is aimed at younger learners. There are plenty of pieces for each note, and the font is bigger. There is a fanfare to "Take a bow" at the end of each section, and there are lots of silly songs that will appeal, as well as Jazzy backing tracks. Musically good, and lots of fun.

AN AMAZING PUBLICATION!!! Review by Caroline R (Musicroom.com)
Star Rating
This is the best recorder tutor I have found. I like the Red Hot series, but find it moves rather quickly for younger children. I have started this with Reception class this week and they love it. I've delved in further on with my Year 1, 2 and 3 children. The favourite pieces so far are the Hairy Spider and Smelly Cheese. Try buying their Teachers Pack (direct from Kevin Mayhew) my children love the progress charts. We have one per class on the wall and they are very competitive as to which class can play which notes! AN AMAZING PUBLICATION !!!

The kids have loved it so far! Long may it continue. Review by Nick S (Musicroom.com)

I've just started teaching recorder at KS2 but this book has really helped! The accompanying CD has all the backing tracks for the tunes which saves me accompanying them and the kids have loved it so far! Long may it continue.

I have found the additional teaching pack useful, too as it has everything else I need to make teaching this easy and successful. Review by Jonnie (Musicroom.com)
Star Rating
Having used this in my school, I can safely say this is another brilliant tutor from Sarah Watts - it is very clear and very easy to follow at home for my pupils but also in big classes, too! I have found the additional teaching pack useful, too as it has everything else I need to make teaching this easy and successful.

I wish her music had been available for all the years I was teaching. Review by Mike Oliver (Musicroom.com)
Star Rating
I am delighted that Sarah Watts has produced another excellent recorder tutor. As with Red Hot Recorder the tunes have her up-tempo accompaniments on CD, which make them so enjoyable for children to play. I wish her music had been available for all the years I was teaching.

Fits in well alongside 'Red Hot Recorder Tutor' and 'Red Hot Dots' Review by Ray Allen (Musicroom.com)
Star Rating
I'm not sure that this is a terribly original recorder tutor, but it does fit in well alongside 'Red Hot Recorder Tutor' and 'Red Hot Dots' as used in general class music making. With all three of Sarah Watts' books you do have ideal materials for a whole range of high quality class music making.
