Dear recorder student, once again Ernesto Martin is here giving you a new recorder tutorial.
This time we will go into the world of adventure music, we will learn how to play pirates of the caribbean theme recorder.
What do you think? I think this song is very accessible for intermediate level students. It is not as difficult as it seems, you have to take into consideration that it is in a ternary compass. I wanted to write the tutorial in 3/4 time, remember Harry Potter Theme on recorder.
The main difference between these two tunes is that Pirates of the Caribbean does not use recorder notes in such a high register.
Having explained this, we are now going to study the notes that we are going to use to play He’s a Pirate on recorder.
You should also know that the original Pirates song is in the musical key of D minor. As our soprano recorder has a particular register, you will find this tutorial adapted to its register.
We are going to play the melody in the key of A minor, because the original key forces us to play high notes outside the register of the soprano recorder.
Study these notes so you can play Pirates of the Caribbean on Recorder.

⭐️About Pirates of Caribbean
Pirates of the Caribbean is the title of a fantasy adventure and pirate film franchise produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and based on the Walt Disney Theme Park attraction of the same name. The Pirates of the Caribbean saga has five films released and a sixth in production.
The directors of the films have been: Gore Verbinski, Rob Marshall, and Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg. The saga was specially written by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio , in addition to other writers such as Stuart Beattie, Jay Wolpert and Jeff Nathanson.
The stories follow the adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley). The characters Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and Joshamee Gibbs (Kevin McNally) follow Jack, Will and Elizabeth over the course of the films. The fourth film features Philip Swift (Sam Claflin) and Syrena (Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey), while the fifth film features Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) and Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario).
This film saga is loosely based on myths and legends of the seas, such as the pirate Davy Jones and his ghostly crew aboard The Flying Dutchman, Greek mythology including gods like Poseidon, the nymph Calypso, beings like the Kraken and mermaids, witchcraft and the life of pirates of the time. It freely portrays the British Empire, the East India Company, the Spanish Empire and its relationship with pirates and privateers.
The series began with its first big-screen release in 2003 with Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, which received positive reviews from critics and grossed $654 million worldwide, making it a smash hit. After the first film, Walt Disney Pictures revealed that it was preparing a trilogy. The second film in the franchise, titled Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, was released three years later. The sequel proved successful, breaking box office records worldwide on the day of its release. Dead Man’s Chest, as it was called in Spanish, ended up being the highest-grossing film of 2006, earning nearly $1.1 billion worldwide. The third film in the series, subtitled At World’s End, continued in 2007 to break records on its opening day. Disney released a fourth film, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, in 2011 in conventional 2D, Digital 3-D and IMAX 3D. On Stranger Tides also managed to gross over $1 billion, making it only the second film in the franchise to do so and only the eighth film in history to achieve this record.
In 2015 Disney began filming the fifth installment of the franchise, which was released in 2017 under the title Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge, with a worldwide release date of May 26.
