I am happy to say that Playing the Soprano Recorder has become our recorder book of choice for our music educators and Sunday School teachers throughout the USA. The musical methods, activities and music created by [the author] have led to wonderful developments in our recorder ensembles and the constant building of our music culture.

This excellent method includes extensive introductory comments that I strongly recommend every teacher read. They set a tone for teaching in general, and for teaching the recorder specifically, that I find attractive and helpful…. I thank the author for her careful and thoughtful addition to the literature. I like the way it is presented in a very manageable and visibly pleasing format, with enough space on each page to separate between sections. I love the inclusion of a creative activity with each lesson. It is clear to me that Guderian is an experienced and gifted music specialist; she knows how to encourage and inspire her students.
