For many children, the first introduction to musical instruments is the recorder. As babies graduate from banging on pots and pans and enter school they are given early opportunities to make music on simple instruments. Rhythm band and Orff instruments provide youngsters with much opportunity for creative expression. Many people best remember their first group, or solo, musical instrument experience with the recorder. It is often the first time that a student learns a popular song and is given the capability to play their favorite children’s song.
Canto recorders provide a high quality yet inexpensive option for these early musical introductions. Two Canto recorders are available from The Woodwind and Brasswind. The Canto One-Piece Translucent Soprano Recorder with Baroque Fingering comes in either translucent blue, red, green, purple, or yellow. These fun and attractive recorders create a colorful room of young recorder players and help keep instruments separate. This one-piece instrument possesses great balance and intonation and has double 6th and 7th holes. Complete with a bag and cleaning rod, it is easy to safely store and keep clean any Canto recorder. A fingering chart is also included so that students can quickly grasp the concepts behind their first instrument.
The Woodwind and Brasswind also offers the Canto CR101 Soprano Recorder with Baroque Fingering. This recorder is also lightweight and responsive and is available in more traditional colors such as ivory or dark brown. Both of these recorders are formed from durable ABS plastic ensuring that they can outlast classrooms or home use.
Introduce your child or classroom to what is likely their first real instrument with a great sounding and wonderfully priced Canto recorder.
