On a Friday the school sends home a letter that says our kids are going to be learning the recorder and they need to bring one to school... on Monday.
I crisis ordered this bad boy. Turns out there's options for recorders. It's been a minute since I played the recorder in grade school and I had no idea what I was shopping for. This is it parents! Yamaha is music teacher recommended. This exact one is what my kid's music teacher said he would have ordered. And prime shipping saved me! It comes with a little bag and so far it has held up well. I'm 90% certain my kid will lose it before the year is up. I'm ordering a spare just in case at this price.
Don't buy the clear/colored ones. I was told they break easily and don't sound as good.
