At any rate - here's the thing. Charlotte is intrigued by the kids at school playing band instruments, and has asked about playing an instrument. I can get *entirely* behind that - and since two hundred years ago I used to play, I can even help.
So, where do I get a decent quality, reasonably priced recorder? I'm thinking soprano, because I never learned to read in any key but C. For that matter, *I* could use a decent quality, reasonably priced recorder (soprano or tenor.) I want wood, but plastic is plenty good for the short one.
