Site Licenses / Purchase Orders

The melodies from the first 9 pages of the book are supplied for free, followed by an option to purchase the entire game. If you are interested in site licenses or you would like to buy through a purchase order, please contact West Music.

Site licenses allow a number of students to play the complete game. Students can access the game from several computers and maintain their personal progress and score, for example, if playing from a school computer and at home.

Technical Requirements

Important! A microphone is needed to play the game.

The Recorder Express game is activated by playing a real recorder so a microphone is needed to allow the computer to "hear" the notes being played.

Practically all laptop computers come with a built-in microphone. Many computers also have microphones attached (for example, mics used for Skype and Google Talk). If you don't have a microphone available, you can get one here. See more details in the FAQ.
