Descant (soprano) recorders

…more commonly known as the classic ‘school recorders’! For years and years, descant recorders have been bulk ordered by primary schools worldwide, partly because they are affordable but also because they are easy to learn and they provide children with a perfect, uncomplicated introduction to ensemble music. They are tuned in the key of C and have a range of just over two octaves (from C above middle C to D natural).

Here at Chamberlain Music we offer a vast range of descant recorders to suit pupils of all ages and abilities, from the colourful Recorder Workshop 301 range to the smarter, more traditional recorders such as the Yamaha YRS24B and the Aulos 205 (the one with the yellow bag!). We also stock a huge selection of tutor books with accompanying CDs to get your recorder classes up and running. Please call our sales team on 01428 658806 if you need any help or advice.
