    I’ve recently started playing recorder again after a 20 year hiatus. I’m managing to get all notes up until high A. (Shocked myself that I could get some of half thumb notes, they were the bane of my life when I was learning all those years ago).
    I just cannot get a decent sound at all, not really sure what I’m doing wrong. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Could it be placement of thumb that is causing this? I can get a high G to sound perfect but as soon as I attempt high A, it goes flat (sounds dreadful!) do I need to reposition my thumb to get a beautiful high A. It’s preventing me from playing pieces I want to play. Or is it all in the breath?
