Today, the family in the apartment next to me decided to give their 4-year-old kid a recorder. It's been three hours. Kill me. FML

Did you try asking them to stop? or get noise cancelling headphones?

I feel your pain, it was like that with me for a while; recorders are evil devices that cause people to punch you in the face if you play one

Or he can get a drum set. So when they tell him stop, he can tell them to stop first. Win win, he has fun, and the other kid may stay quiet.

That's actually a good idea. I would suggest making your own set of drums j stead of spending lots of money. A pan or a bowl helps. Bang the hell out that shit.

Yeah, those white containers :p cheap, and wont cost you anything except the sticks.

48 I was thinking bagpipes but I like where you're going with this.

53, I'm sorry, but no one deserves that kind of torture. I would rather walk through a room of legos, unless they knew how to play.

nothing can stop the instrument of satan...

#52, you mean spoons, right? No need for actual drumsticks.

I hope he/she gets over it soon. Sorry, OP.

Agreed. Recorders are evil instruments forged in the fires of hell. They are more designed for migraines than for music. Have you ever seen a famous recorder recording artist? Yea, me either.

#32 you kinda tried too hard there

people who give children recorders deserve to listen to them forever. there is a special section of hell full of music teachers and misguided parents.

Recorders were forged in heart of mount doom!! Only there can you cast it back into the fire and release the world from its evil. We must form a fellowship. You have my violin, my trumpet, and my tuba.

39- back when I was in 4th grade we had to play recorders, wasn't up to the parents.

Actually the $1 recorders kids are given are bad, and kids that play them are bad because they're new to music. Recorders are a baroque/renaissance instrument that can sound very beautiful, especially the wooden ones used by professionals that play in recorder ensembles. Recorders are played at the beginning of Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven, a song thought by many to be the best rock song of all time. Look up recorder ensemble on youtube and click on the first result, its lovely.

You poor thing. I couldn't even stand listening to others play the recorder when I was in primary school and we had to play it. I think if I heard it again now I'd be getting very suicidal

Yea elementary schools give kids recorders a lot. Mine did. OP are you sure the kids parents gave it to them? Not that it makes the situation any better for you either way but if they have to learn it for school I would just get some ear plugs or something.

Um, the kid is 4 years old, not in year 4 at school. I'd say it's definitely the kids parents that gave it to him.

Is that Rest In Peace, or the verb?

Lets use some common sense here...

I think #22 was obviously making a joke and I thought it was kind of clever.

Recorders are the most evil things in history.

Was she being accompanied by a teenager on a trombone?

Just be thankful that they're not bagpipes.

I feel your pain, my sisters got one for Christmas. It was a very long Christmas.
