Royal Recorders - Accompaniment Tracks

MP3 accompaniment tracks are central to the delivery of the Royal Recorders program.

- Accompaniments (in a variety of styles) add excitement to the foundational, simple 2-note songs

- Accompaniments provide support for more difficult songs

Permission is given to download MP3s in the best format for you AND your students (phones, computers, Google Classroom, etc.). Students are encouraged to use these tracks outside of class time as well.

Young Recorder Players will love playing along with these tracks!

Accompaniment tracks (22 songs in a variety of styles) provide support and musical interest, motivating students to play songs multiple times. Accompaniment tracks are offered with a practice speed, supporting the early stages of the students’ efforts. A performance speed track is also provided for performances or as an added challenge in regular class activities. Students can use these tracks when performing out in the community as well.

More accomplished Recorder Players working in Student Book 2 will love the support these tracks provide!

Accompaniment tracks for the 23 songs in Student Book 2 create a musical foundation for students as they play more complex songs in a variety of styles. Accompaniment tracks are offered with two speed options. The practice speed supports students as they learn each song. The performance speed may be used as an added challenge in regular class activities or to enhance the overall presentation when students are performing for school concerts or out in the community.
