How to Play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on a Recorder

Save

A recorder is a small wooden or plastic woodwind musical instrument, which is related to the flute. The recorder is a basic instrument that is rather easy to understand. For this reason, the recorder is usually the first instrument that is taught in school to help children learn music. Upon beginning to learn the recorder, one of the first songs that is often taught is "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star."
