A Perfect Musical Foundation... The Yamaha YRF-21 Fife is a great starter instrument for the young musician.
With fingering styles similar to both the flute and recorder and with a similar embouchure shape, it is very useful for later making the transition to the flute and other woodwind instruments.
It has a rich clear sound which carries well, and good playability. It is especially suited for fife and drum corps or those with small hands.
