How to practice ornamentation?

Jul 18, 2019

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?
