Parts of the recorder

The soprano recorder consists of 3 main parts. The head joint (with the mouth piece), the middle joint (with the main wholes we will use) and the bottom joint (with the shape of a bell).

  • The pipe of the head joint and the whole of the middle joint should be on the same line. Make sure you have adjusted them properly. 

  • The bottom joint should be located a bit aside, so that it is easier for the little finger to reach those wholes.
