RECORDER LIFT OFF
The sky is the limit with Recorder Lift Off! Beginner recorder players are invited to join TSO musicians on an inspiring journey of musical discovery from the first note they learn!
Recorder Lift Off provides sequential sets of play-along videos created around 25 works for beginner recorder and a variety of chamber ensembles, commissioned by the TSO from composers studying at the University of Tasmania (UTAS) Conservatorium of Music.
Compositions were created in consultation with UTAS Associate Professor Dr Maria Grenfell and Tasmanian music educator Cynthia Howard, who suggested the TSO create video accompaniments for beginner recorder.
Sets are listed in sequential order and each set includes the following:
- Video of the Recorder part only with music notation and fingering chart displayed throughout
- Video of Recorder with Chamber Ensemble
- Video of Chamber Ensemble only
- PDF of recorder sheet music
All videos include a 2-bar count-in. Please note that Ensemble Only videos have a silent count-in, for performance purposes.
A complete set of recorder PDFs is available here.
Recorder Lift Off is a JOIN IN resource.
