Any other parents with a young child about to learn the recorder may
benefit from not buying their child a low cost plastic recorder, but
rather buy them a proper wooden recorder (about 50 quid).
The advantages are:
1) Easier to play, as its more tolerant of breathing errors
2) Less squeaks as per 1
3) Sounds nicer
And if the sound is nicer, and less error prone the child will be less
disheartened and the parents less relucatnt to allow practising at 6
am on a Sunday morning!
