Play the Recorder Month Archive - American Recorder Society

Play the Recorder Month Downloadable Music Archive


These compositions/arrangements were published in American Recorder magazine in past years for ARS members to play on Play the Recorder Day, the third Saturday in March. Most were written specifically for this event. 

Established in 1992, this event was instituted to promote the enjoyment of playing new music, recognize the important contribution of contemporary composers/arrangers to the world of recorder music, and to encourage others to play recorder.

We invite our members to download and play these 3-5 page intermediate level pieces (requires login - and please note that the PDFs may appear in a new tab or window, so adjust pop-ups if needed). Please feel free to share them with your friends and fellow musicians!

You may use the Composition Share Link, found on each piece, to share this music with your friends. Note that anyone may see the thumbnail image and listen to the sound sample, but only logged-in ARS members may download music or listen to the entire .mp3 recording.
