Hear me out.

Recorders, for the most part, are the first instrument people learn how to play. And ya know what, if you put a recorder in front me, bet money that I can still perform "Hot Cross Buns" like a young Louie Armstrong.
However, it is an instrument that is normally dropped within a week of learning how to play. MY BOLD PREDICTION is that by the end of 2017, we will see a DRASTIC rise in kids interested in playing the recorder long term.
And here is why:
With songs such as Broccoli by D.R.A.M featuring a flute in the hook, and Fake Love by Drake, featuring whatever weird instrument is playing throughout (sounds like a steel drum,) we're seeing unorthodox instruments appearing in popular music.
Therefore, I think a bunch of mini hipster kids are going to see this as an opportunity to start creating their own original music with stranger instruments, and being as the recorder is the first instrument they are exposed to, they might stick to that.
I don't know, I'm probably wrong on this one, but the idea of the recorder sweeping the nation makes me giggle.
