My landlord said not to worry about practicing recorder when he's home. I haven't because I don't want to annoy him. But that means on work days I can't often practice! (I played in the park the last two days.) so tonight I played a couple of ten minute sessions with him upstairs. I'll see what he says. You can silence the recorder entirely with a piece of paper in the tongue but that's not very satisfying and tells me nothing about how the notes are sounding.
Well just toot on brah
IIRC you're playing a soprano. Yeah, that one does have a tendency to penetrate walls
But then they can all be pretty piercing when you hit that upper register, at least when a rank amateur like me does it. Good night, some of the noises...I'm going to get it though.

I hope this isn't off-topic, but if you would like to hear an amazing recorder player, check out Horacio Franco. I wouldn't have believed it if I had not seen/heard him live in concert.
Thanks for the info. I'll look for some of his performances.
