I teach in an area where parents don't typically have a lot of extra money. I have used these recorders for the last few years. To me they sound just as good as the recorders twice the price that most of my fellow music teachers insist on. I'm all for getting the best for the best price and this is it.

I teach in a low income area where these recorders were purchased by the previous teacher at my school, and I am suffering the consequences of the poor build quality of the recorders. Though they are initially 1 piece recorders, many of my students' recorders are now in multiple pieces. The glue that holds the mouthpiece on is not sufficient and I have had to superglue many back together after only one drop (which is pretty much inevitable with elementary schoolers). I think that the Yamaha YRS-20 is a better alternative. For only a little more on the price, you get a much higher quality recorder in terms of playability, quality of materials, and sound.

                  I am a music teacher, and I ordered these recorders for my fourth graders. For the price, they have a clear sound, good intonation, and sturdy construction. In the past, I ordered three-piece recorders of a different brand. I am finding that I prefer the Canto one-piece construction because students aren't constantly pulling their instruments apart, turning pieces the wrong way, and dropping and breaking pieces.

                      Immediately, my students were attracted to the colorful recorders. From the initial introduction to the instrument, the students cannot wait to learn the new note and or song on their personal recorder. They are very enthusiastic.

                                          Great for classroom use. My kids love the color choices and are happy with the sound. Parents and I like the one piece construction. One piece means that curious little hands won't take them apart in class. They also come with a sleeve to keep them in, which is great for classroom storage.

                                              Perfect for my beginning students. Nice clear tone. Price can't be beat. But the colors are what make them stand out!

                                                Elementary school music teacher stated this was a high quality recorder and fine for school use. My son's school recorder had broken, and this was used as a replacement.

                                                    I bought three for each of my kids. Happy with them for school use. Cant beat the price with a case and a cleaning rod. Exceptional customer service, shipping fast. I was most pleased with my 1st experience with musicians friend. I will come back in future!
