    Hello everyone,

    I recently bought a Yamaha Soprano/Descant B YRS-24B. But the instructions have finger charts for soprano tenor and soprano alto, and I want to know what kind of soprano I bought or which one I have to learn.

    It is hard for me to find a recorder teacher where I live, that is why I am recurring to you guys for help.

    thanks in advance.

    The catalog number YRS-24B indicates that the instrument is a soprano. The fingering chart most likely shows fingerings for both soprano/tenor and sopranino/alto. The lowest note for the soprano and tenor fingerings will be C (one ledger line below the staff). The lowest note for the sopranino and alto fingerings will be F (first/lowest space on the staff). Since your instrument is a soprano, learn the C fingerings. Good luck and have fun. –Dick–
