  • 1. I know that playing long notes is the best way to develop a good sound but they're boring! Isn't there a more pleasant way?
  • 2. When I play slow music, my notes sound uneven and strangled. Why?
  • 3. I'm always having to stop for breath after a couple of bars. How can I improve my breath control?
  • 4. I often find the lowest notes impossible to play.
  • 5. After playing for a short while, my right hand begins to hurt and my shoulders feel stiff.
  • 6. I can't get notes in the upper register cleanly. Some notes sound very woolly.
  • 7. When I play together with other recorder players it sounds dreadful. Everyone's instrument seems to sound different, particularly if they're in different registers like descant with tenors. What's wrong?
  • Holding the recorder properly8. I play the tenor recorder and find that my right thumb becomes very painful after a short while.
  • 9. Click on picture on the right.
  • 10. My tenor recorder will not play notes above A (1st ledger line above treble clef). What's wrong?
  • 11. I can't get my fingers and tongue to work together.
