recorder Most people do not consider the recorder to be a serious musical instrument although it is often the first instrument taught to children.

The recorder is a hollow tube that is played by passing air through the mouthpiece whilst notes are produced by blocking and unblocking holes placed along its length.

Traditionally made from wood, recorders can also be made of plastic in many sizes.  Wooden recorders are far superior in sound quality are far sturdier and require little maintenance.

Popularly used in Folk, Classical and Pop music the recorder is a versatile and easy instrument for complete beginners to learn with relative ease.

Recorder Digits 2.6
Recorder Digits is a Windows 9x/NT/ME/2000 program designed to display and document recorder fingerings. In default mode, it displays standard and alternate fingerings for alto, soprano/tenor, and bass recorders. The program also has the ability to load external fingering files. This gives the user the ability to change the fingerings that the program displays. For example, a person could create a file with the fingerings specific to a particular model of recorder. Recorder Digits comes supplied with 2 external files, one showing trills for all notes and another, intended for beginners, which shows standard fingerings for all notes, with brief instructions for each (this file can also serve as a good starting point for teachers, who can easily modify the remarks with their own). "This update features a Preferences dialog to set program StartUp options, plus an external file showing Turned Trills."
