Oh, I much prefer boomwackers! They are "cooperative" and don't go out of tune. They aren't expensive but are not cheap either. If your school is one a tight budget, you can google how to make them out of golf club holder tubes (is that what they are called, the long white or black tubes you put in a golf bag to keep the clubs from getting all beat up and tangled).

I personally love recorders -- but not when it's a bunch of elementary kids playing them. Ouch! I have six recorders and enjoy playing them and hearing others REALLY play them.

I'm surprised to hear so many people fondly look back on recorders. I thought it was a waste of time when I was a child. I notice, at least where I subbed, records seem to be going the way of the dodo.

I don't teacher recorders?

Most of the adults I know don't look fondly upon their recorder memories, I use other instruments to teach note reading, and it seems like a bit of a waste of my time. I have string instruments in my classroom (dulcimers, ukuleles, guitars) and have just acquired enough keyboards for the students to use. Is recorder really something I need to have to be a good music teacher? My principal opposes making kids purchase things due to our school socio-economic make up (lots of poverty), and so I can't have them buy their own to keep. What do you think?
