Tutoring Tooters is a complete musicianship method using the soprano recorder as the vehicle of instruction. The books works equally well for adult beginners and for students in middle-upper elementary grades. The book uses 97 short folk songs and easy melodies by the masters. Most melodies have lyrics so they can be both played and sung. Enrichment options are provided for guitar, piano or Orff instrument accompaniments. Musicianship processes are highlighted in each lesson within five categories - "tutor boxes:" melody, rhythm, meter, form, and recorder technique. The book has an easel backing so it stands on students' desks.
