The programme is divided into "two sections. The first section deals with elementary score reading, using three parts. The example is taken from a Mozart minuet and is played on oboe, clarinet... and bassoon. Dr. Dinah Earsham explains the relationship of the parts to each other and the method used for writing out the score. The section ends with the trio playing the minuet and the students following the score on the screen. The second section of the programme is presented by Bernard Thomas and Ross Winters and introduces the student to recorder playing, dealing with the problems of holding the instrument, breathing and fingering.
