Parts of flute or bamboo recorder are namely:
- Beak (or mouthpiece) - the part of the recorder you put between your lips (the top part of the head joint).
- Double holes - Tone holes that have two separate holes.
- Foot joint - the bottom part of the recorder; it has the bottom finger hole (a double hole) and is turned slightly to the side.
- Head joint - the top part of the recorder, the part you blow into.
- Lip - the sharp edge abutting the window; air from the wind way hits the labium and produces sound. Never touch this part of the recorder - it can warp.
- Middle section (or barrel) - the middle part of the recorder; it has most of the finger holes.
- Ramp - the gradual incline that leads to the window (in the head joint).
- Tone hole (or finger hole) - Holes that are covered and uncovered by the fingers to change the note played.
- Window - the rectangular hole in the mouthpiece.
