Eventually you will learn the slides or glissandos that can make your music more complex. The recorder tutor will teach you finger exercises that will help you memorize the placement of each finger for each note.

Another important aspect of the instrument that your recorder tutor will help you with is mastering the breathing you must learn to play this, or any wind instrument. After you learn the breathing and the notes, you will progress on to simple songs.

Whether you are looking for lessons for your child who is taking the recorder in school, or have decided to learn the instrument yourself, you can find an excellent recorder tutor through a music school. You can also find them through private ads and classifieds.
