The Open and Play Recorder set giveaway

By | November 7, 2012

The toddler was sent a Pirate themed Open and Play Recorder pack! Whilst the husband sighed I thought it’s never too young to be musical. The music classes I used to take him to have clearly rubbed off as he’s been enjoying the recorder and making lots of music! The recorder is very easy to play which makes it an ideal instrument to learn more about music. The Blue Recorder Pirate pack contains a Starting to play book & CD, and pirate themed stickers (including fish, maps, skull & crossbones, parrots and pirate hats!).

The Open and Play recorder pack includes:

High quality three piece coloured descant recorder

Recorder cleaning rod and carry bag with drawstring

Themed fingering chart with handy ‘Starting to Play’ tips

60 peel-able themed stickers so you your child can decorate the recorder and music

Easy to understand ‘Starting to Play…’ tutor book and CD to begin playing straight away


This is an ideal music gift pack for children of all ages, and retails at a very reasonable £9.99
