Why the Recorder is Amazing
Well firstly, the recorder is a remarkably versatile instrument. It has a lovely, romantic and classical sound. But you can play any type of music you want on it. From classical music, to folk music, to modern pop music...and even film, TV and game soundtrack music which is my personal favorite.
Famous examples of the recorder used in popular music culture is an alto recorder in the Harry Potter soundtrack, as well as a bass recorder used for the main riff in The Mandalorian, Star Wars soundtrack.
In the recorder family of instruments you can also cover several registers in music, with a different size recorder for each range. From the standard soprano recorder that most of us start on, to alto recorder, tenor recorder, bass recorder and even lower.
Furthermore, the recorder is one of the rare open hole flutes, that is a fully chromatic instrument. Let me explain: "Chromatic Instrument" means that it is designed to be able to be easily playable for all 12 notes of music. On top of that you have over 2 octaves in range on a recorder. Which in turn means that you can play any song ever written, in any style of music, on this instrument.
Finally, the recorder is a in fact capable of so much expression techniques, variation and emotion. Such as for example: adding decorations, playing in legato, making slides, bends, and doing vibrato. So yes, the recorder is a pretty amazing instrument.
