Suzuki Recorder School Book One Pieces

”This woodwind teacher (Ms. Katherine Caldwell White) studied at the Talent Education School of Music for 2.5 years.  I can recommend her work.” 

Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, President, Talent Education Institute, Matsumoto, Japan (1976)

"In my opinion nothing but good can come from the use of the Suzuki Method in the schools. The study of orchestral instruments in later years would be greatly facilitated if the students were grounded in this excellent Recorder method.  The quality of the recordings leaves nothing to be desired.  The whole collection is a fitting monument to years of patient, devoted work.  My congratulations to Katherine and all who have worked with her." Alexander Murray, Former Principal Flute, London Symphony Orchestra, Prof. of Flute
