#beginquote# I'm 52 and have just started the recorder... you can teach yourself easily enough. When it's played well the recorder is a gorgeous instrument. The descant is small so you can carry it with you and you can quickly learn to play almost recognisable tunes (well when given small hints people recognise what I'm trying to play and I've only been playing 2 weeks, half an hour each day)... It depends on how much time you have to practise and how much you want to spend on lessons and the instrument. Recorders (at least ones you can learn on) are cheap. I practise the fingering when I'm watching TV and carry the music with me to practise reading that on the train for example. It's fun. The only disadvantage of blowy instruments like the recorder is that you can't sing at the same time - as you can with the harp. In my case, not being able to sing at the same time is a blessing as I have a terrible voice! #endquote#
