I have a new Yamaha tenor recorder, and I love practicing it. But I'm having a really hard time not overblowing, especially in the lowest register.
I'm a tuba player, so using so little air is really foreign for me. If I do manage to get the lower register on the tenor recorder correct, it feels like I'm not using any air at all.
The answers in Yamaha tenor recorder are great, but I'm curious if there are any exercises I can do away from the recorder to practice my airflow. As Shannon's answer there says, "Practise for very short amounts of time at first because your fingers get tired and it's almost impossible to play then."
Are there methods of practicing this air support away from the instrument so that I'm not unduly fatiguing my fingers and creating bad habits?
