INTERESTING FACTS YOU
SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
THIS AWESOME INSTRUMENT....

(by the way, you'll be playing in NO time!)
 
 



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

   The recorder is an actual instrument that has been around for more than 400 hundred years.

   This was during the Baroque Period in Music History (1600-1750).  The recorder that we play is based on the recorder from this period in time. 

Some events that took place during this time, are the birth of opera, the start of major and minor sounds in music and the development of the modern orchestra.
 


   These plastic instruments were considered the sophisticated flutes of the time, but were made out of wood. 
   By the 1400's, there were eight sizes recorders -  great bass, quint bass, bass, tenor, alto, soprano, sopranino.
   Recorders are  members of 
the woodwind family.  Like the flute, recorders don't have a reed.

   The recorder has seven finger-holes in front, a thumb-hole behind, and a beak-shaped mouthpiece.

   The instrument has been widely revived in the 20th century as an easy instrument for children to learn.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

THE REASONS YOUR
MUSIC TEACHER
 TEACHES YOU TO PLAY
THE RECORDER.
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 

  -  Learning how to play the recorder requires music reading.  The language of music can be described as a foreign language that combines math, science, sounds and symbols.

  -  Playing any instrument demands a tremendous amount of coordination.  When you play the recorder you will be breathing with your lungs, reading music with your eyes, playing notes and songs by moving your fingers, while sitting up straight.  WOW!

    -   You will learn how to play improvisations
(music you just make up and play without
thinking about it) and compose (write)
your own songs and pieces.

The recorder helps children learn
how to play wind instruments.  Wind
instruments are those instruments that have a
mouthpiece and require the player to use
air in order to produce a sound.  Once you
know how to play the recorder, you'll be
able to transfer what you have learned,
to other instruments.
