Recorders

                  

Forget about the tub of bleach filled with with recorders at your elementary school and Hot Cross Buns! Recorders are played by serious musicians too, you know. The recorder, like the tin whistle and Native American flute, is a tubular fipple flute. A fipple mouthpiece has a block that forms the floor of the wind way, so a fipple flute is simply a flute that is played from the top instead of the side. It is usually made of wood, ivory and, of course, plastic. They happen to be very popular in elementary schools partly because they can be bought inexpensively in bulk and partly because they are easy to play on a basic level. The closely spaced holes are also easily reached by the small hands of children. Mastery of the recorder, as with most instruments, is not so easy.  Give yourself a chance to master the recorder, however, and you will be rewarded with beautiful music.  Shop our selection of recorders at our store or online.
