'Bum Note!' (ODC - School)

Did anyone else have one of these for school? I am not especially musically minded, but EVERYONE had to have a recorder in my junior school! It made up part of the morning assembly along with a bit of hymn singing and lesson reading! My two strapping sons would probably have so much fun taking the mickey if they knew that I played one of these at school as a boy! :-)

Sshhh! ...don't tell them! :-)

 

I rather think that the statutory music and sport participation has tended to be left behind somewhat by modern day schools nowadays, but stumbling across this in the loft the other day did bring a wry smile to my face!

 

Of course I couldn't play the thing very well - hence the title! :-)))
