Music and Musicians, Recorder RIP, Jez Eden
Like many children, the recorder was the first instrument both my girls learnt to play at school.
One day, at home, Zoë picked up her recorder to play
and with her first note a large earwig shot out of the other end.
As a sympathetic mother I consoled her of course, as she reminded me yesterday.
"Well that shows you haven't been practising, and I don't suppose the earwig was very happy either."
That was the last note she ever played on a recorder.
