Это неплохой учебник начального уровня для игры на блок-флейте (soprano recorder). Пошаговые инструкции, постановка рук, подробное объяснение основ ритма. Около 30 различных песен, легких для изучения. Язык - английский, но практически вся книга - ноты да картинки. Пока на сайте всего одна книга по этому инструменту, на мой взгляд, эта будет не лишней. Если ее сочтут полезной и разместят на сайте, то у меня есть еще парочка того же направления.
