YOu can have a lot of fun AND music with a recorder/flute a
bec/blockflote. I did.

I carried a Yamaha plastic soprano recorder with me for a couple of
years. Played it on one of my breaks each day (when i worked full time
in a public library).

One of the big advantages to the recorder is:

there is *no* reason to have tense fingers or mouth and even the
airstream is gentle.
The instrument is light, no keys to push,etc.

I also worked with just a fingering chart (that came with the instrument)
and only played by ear.
I could practice in the far magazine storage or loading dock.

It got so that if i became crabby, coworkers would suggest, "Have you had
your recorder break?"
