How to practice ornamentation?

I have been studying the recorder over a month with a Yamaha method book for alto recorder. But ever since I took a peek on some baroque pieces, mainly the book "Der Fluyten Lust-Hof", I have been dealing with a little problem: to play baroque pieces, I have to hone my skills around phrasing and ornamentation, as they are very important to even get the theme of the musics. 

Sadly for me, I can't afford books surrounding the subject because they are not easy to get in Brazil, almost all of the interesting books are overseas and I'm on a budget. How can I exercise? It's a good strategy to do some trial and error to make musically convincing or is there something you would recommend me doing?

Congratulations MuseScore Team

By this means I just want to give my thanks to the entire team of MuseScore that works intensely and has an understanding and tolerance as the immensity of the ocean and its deep waters to meet so many problems and requests from so many users equally Demanding. Continuation of good work and congratulations on your site that is a success.

Work in progress album, thoughts?

 Hi all,

    Over the past nine-ish months I've been working on an album titled 'Harper'. It's about a trans girl named Harper who comes out to parents who aren't exactly accepting and in an area that really isn't any better. The only person she has for support is her best friend, Emily. At the end of the album, Harper is brutally murdered by a group of her classmates.

    Obviously, I'm not finished, I plan on adding at least four or five more pieces, completely redoing 'Harper & Emily', possibly adding a couple things to 'The Closet', and either remastering or outright redoing 'The Funeral & Harper's Legacy'. However, I'd like some feedback on what I have so far. I've linked the two most recent pieces--'Harper's Theme' and 'Emily's Theme'-- as well as the album set

Hallo!

Welcome to our unfortunately small group (for now, hopefully)! 
Here we can share music by Emily Black from the Kingdom series and the Knights of Arrethtrae series. 
I've already transcribed "Call  to Courage", and I'm working on "Ballad of the Prince". I see that "The Shadow Heart" has been added to the Musescore community by @Loyal_Arrethtraen and "Eirwyn" has been added by @Pianodudette. Let's work on bringing the rest of Emily Black's music into the community!
