    Explanation
    To properly care for a recorder, it is recommended to thread a thin piece of cloth into the cleaning rod and run it through the instrument. This method helps remove any moisture, dirt, or residue that may accumulate inside the recorder, ensuring its cleanliness and proper functioning. Using paper or tissue, spraying water, blowing hard into it, or letting someone else play it are not suitable ways to care for a recorder and may potentially damage the instrument.

      The left thumb

    Explanation
    The left pinky and the right thumb are the fingers that never get used to play notes on the recorder. The recorder is a wind instrument that requires fingerings to produce different notes. However, the left pinky and the right thumb do not have designated keys or holes on the recorder, so they are not used for playing notes.

    What should you do if you are squeaking?

    • A.

      Check to make sure you are not blowing too hard

    • B.

      Take your instrument apart and look into it

    • D.

      B and C

    • E.

      A and C

    Correct Answer
    E. A and C
    Explanation
    If you are squeaking while playing a musical instrument, it is recommended to check if you are blowing too hard and if you are covering the holes completely. Blowing too hard can cause the sound to become unstable and produce squeaks. Similarly, if you are not covering the holes completely, it can affect the airflow and result in squeaking sounds. Therefore, the correct actions to take if you are squeaking are to ensure you are not blowing too hard and to make sure you are covering the holes completely.

    How should you sit when you play the recorder?

    • A.

      Lean on your legs with your elbows

    • B.

      Lean forward so you can see your music

    • C.

      Sit up tall with your back straight

    • D.

      Lean back on your hands

    • E.

      Hold your instrument with one hand

    Correct Answer
    C. Sit up tall with your back straight
    Explanation
    When playing the recorder, it is important to sit up tall with your back straight. This posture allows for proper breath control and helps to maintain good airflow while playing the instrument. It also helps to keep the body relaxed and allows for better finger dexterity. Leaning on the legs with the elbows, leaning forward to see the music, leaning back on the hands, or holding the instrument with one hand would all result in a poor playing position and may hinder the player's ability to produce a clear and accurate sound.
