Music and Musicians, Recorder RIP, Jez Eden

Recorder RIP, Pitt Pen and Coloured Pencils - Jez
Like many children, the recorder was the first instrument both my girls learnt to play at school.

One day, at home,  ZoĆ« 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.


  1. What a yuk experience that must of been. I don't blame her.

    Great color and sketch Jez. Love the expression on her face.

  2. ! This made me laugh, so much, Jez! And you have rendered the recorder, and its inhabitant, perfectly!

  3. LOL I love the story!!! Cute sketch and I love the expression on her face!

  4. What a laugh! Thanks for sharing the story!
