What exactly is a recorder?
The recorder is a woodwind musical instrument of the family known as fipple flutes or internal duct flutes — whistlelike instruments which include the tin whistle and ocarina. The recorder is end-blown and the mouth of the instrument is constricted by a plug, known as a block or fipple.
It is distinguished from other members of the family by having holes for seven fingers (the lower one or two often doubled to facilitate the production of semitones) and one for the thumb of the uppermost hand.

What’s the difference between one, two and three-piece recorders?
One piece recorders are best for beginning players and classroom settings. Why? Because younger players might have a tendency to turn the bodies (the joints) and make changes to the tuning. Older, more accomplished players, and their teachers will appreciate the 2 and 3 piece recorders for playing in ensembles because of the ability to change tuning and gain more precise intonation.
