The recorder is a wonderfully portable instrument. As a result I have not only written many recorder pieces while out on a walk but have also used it to help me remember a melody for a song that comes into my head when I am away from my piano. (I tend to forget the music that comes into my head unless I soon after have a chance to either play it or write it down.) Another delightful thing about the recorder is that it is so fun to play. There is something so very playful about the movement your fingers make as they move on and off the holes in the wood that makes me smile every time I play. As it is also a simple instrument to play, I hope that if you don't already play the recorder that one of these pieces will inspire you to learn. Then soon you too can walk along a path in the woods making music too!
Music for recorder will soon appear on this page.
