Thread Name: recorder music
Subject: RE: recorder music
My parents got me my first recorder some 40 years ago when the music store in the town I grew up in had a fire sale (yes, first they had a fire). They got me a very nice soprano for $1. It smelled a bit of smoke, or maybe that was just my overactive kid imagination.

I still have several around the house somewhere, but most are either missing a foot joint or need some repair. The exception is a very nice alto with ivory or ivoryesque joint rings. Wish I knew which box it was in, this thread has me of a mind to play it some more.

And just yesterday my grandson was visiting and brought his recorder along. He's pretty good at Hot Cross Buns and similar songs; I just need to work with him on his breathing. He still hasn't quite mastered how to get the right pressure to produce a good, solid note. (That's another reason to find my alto, so I could do duets with him.)
