The recorder is a member of the fipple family of flutes. Its seven holes and one thumb hole distinguish it from other internal duct flutes. The recorder we know today comes from the Baroque Period (1600-1750). Composers such as J.S.Bach wrote “flauto” parts for the recorder in his works, for example Brandenburg Concerti No.2 and No.4 as well as widely in his cantatas.
By the end of 20th century, the recorder had become more popular than any other time in musical history. Throughout this century, the vast majority of American public schools used recorders to teach music principles to generations of elementary students.
Playing the recorder will help to promote music literacy by learning to read music, which makes it an excellent choice for beginner musicians. Children will enjoy the opportunity to learn how to read notes by playing this instrument as well as the piano but the recorder is much easier to carry around or take on a trip. For those who don’t own a piano, the IQ Plus Plastic Recorder is a sensible alternative. Children aged 8-10 should learn to play this instrument, perhaps earlier if they have strong interest in music. The IQ Plus Plastic Recorder can be a fun instrument for adults as well, and the entire family can enjoy the experience of making music together.
