I am learning the C Soprano recorder. I would like to also have an alto recorder. I am confused as to the Alto C and the Alto F recorder and wonder if I shouldn't consider the Alto C instrument because the fingering would be the same as I am learning on the C Soprano recorder?

I'm new to this. How many keys can I play in?
Jeanne S on Mar 28, 2013
Best Answer: You can play in any key depending on your facility with the instrument and knowledge of the fingerings. The range is limited to just over 2 octaves, but the alto recorder was the most popular for baroque music solo sonatas for recorder and for other ensembles that called for "flauto" as opposed to "flauto traverso" as the designated instrument. Since much of early music is non-idiomatic to a particular instrument, you can play pieces from this period designated for other instruments as long as the range fits the alto recorder. If you are new to the recorder, but can read music, then you can start with the Trapp Family Singers book, then switch to Mario Duschenes Book 2 for more intense literature, scales and arpeggios in all keys, simple tunes that introduce you to every key, and an introduction to some of the best regarded recorder literature with exercises for mastering the difficult passages.

What is the difference between the YRA-312B series and the YRA-314B series for the alto recorder?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2013
Best Answer: Hi! The color is the only difference. If I'm right, the 312 is rosewood, which is a reddish wood, and the 314 is ebony, which is a very dark one. Both are beautiful in my opinion, and they sound marvellous. Thanks :)

Is the" ivory" trim real ivory?
Dixie S on Feb 20, 2013
Best Answer: The trim on the recorder is not real ivory. The body and trim are both made of a durable, high-quality resin with finishes on the outside that simulate the look of rosewood and ivory.
