Off topic as usual, but ever since I joined this place, I‘ve been amazed by suggestions for exercises for sight reading which include the names of the notes, especially for a pupil who is not finding learning to play an instrument easy. For me, it was always a detour I could do without. My bass clef note recognition skills are zero if I have to name the note from the stave, but my fingers know exactly where to go on the keyboard, even when the music includes playing the right hand from the bass clef and the left hand from the treble clef.
...I couldn't play if someone merely wrote the tune in letters: CDEC CDEC EFG EFG or whatever. When reading this forum, if someone refers to a note by name, I have to think about it quite carefully to work out what they're doing...
To be honest, I can't see that there are many scenarios where being able to name notes quickly is vitally important. If you can get fluently from dots on the page to the right notes coming out of the instrument, mission accomplished!
I‘m so relieved to read that others, far superior to me in all things musical, might find themselves in a similar situation on the c and f recorders. There‘s hope for me yet.
