    Amazing for sure! What is she, 13?

    In that first Bach piece, did I hear the piano stutter a bit towards the end?
    It looked like it effected the girl some.

    14 when these pieces were recorded. She's about 17 now, and plays both the soprano and alto recorders.

    So how long have you played recorder? Do you have anything on myspace or youtube?

    I just picked up the recorder again after a decades long absence. I'm not nearly good enough to be on either my space or you tube

    Well, just keep at it! And don't forget to find like minded friends, play duets and such, keeps up the motivation and could lead to actual gigs where you get actual moneyπŸ™‚

    The impressive thing about this recording is that she is using a Dolmetsch 205 school's plastic recorder! These are the very basic plastic recorders that all school kids start on, and yet she manages to produce quite a decent sound, though it is rather harsh and shrill - not in the league of a good ebony descant recorder at all. My daughter played that piece when she was 15, but her sound, on a good wooden instrument, is much warmer and mellower.
