A companion piece for Don Muro’s highly successful EASY 8.  The score contains five add-a-note pieces for the beginning recorder player.  The first piece starts with the note B.  Each new piece adds another note in the following order: A, G, E, and D.  The dynamic accompaniments showcase Muro’s attention to detail and musicality.  The CD contains accompaniments as well as demonstration performances.  Suitable for classroom and/or performance.


  1. B There!  (B)
  2. SwingBA!  (B, A)
  3. End of Day  (B, A, G)
  4. The Tickies Are Coming!  (B, A, G, E)
  5. Return To Maha  (B, A, G, E, D)

“Give Me 5! is the latest of Muro’s add-a-note compositions, this time with only five pieces and five notes – B, A, G, E, and D.  These simple melodies can easily be taught by rote, two measures, then four measures at a time.  Thus the students become aware of the phrasing and form.  Then, as in the “call/response” suggestions in “Eight More Easy 8 Songs“, the group can be divided to alternate phrases as questions and answers.  Muro’s up-to-date synthesized accompaniments, particularly those with a steady rock beat, are just the ticket for today’s young recorder students!”
