The recorder is part of the family of woodwind musical instruments. A recorder is unique in that it has a thumb-hole for the upper hand and seven finger-holes: three for the upper hand and four for the lower. It is the most prolific duct flute in the western classical tradition.
Recorders are made in different sizes with names and compasses roughly corresponding to different vocal ranges. Recorders were traditionally constructed from wood and ivory, but today most recorders are created from molded plastic.
The recorder is first documented in Europe in the Middle Ages, and went on to enjoy wide popularity in the Renaissance and Baroque eras. It was revived in the 20th century and became a popular amateur and educational instrument. Today, there are many professional recorder players who demonstrate the instrument’s full solo range and a large community of amateurs.
