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
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
