Ask Alice, with Alice McVeigh

On taking up the alto recorder,
with classical music agony aunt ALICE McVEIGH

Ask Alice

? 'Dear Alice,

What's this I hear from Anne about your taking up another instrument late in life (this after the violin and voice in your thirties)? I know it's only the recorder, and it's kind of trendy, making regular appearances on Young Musician of the Year finals etc, but isn't it just an out-of-tune wind that (almost) nobody blows good?..
