The clarinet provides beautiful tones across the range of the instrument to fit into any band, jazz band, pop/rock band, or orchestra.
How To Play the Clarinet:
The clarinet has a mellow sound that is produced by blowing across a small piece of wood known as a reed. The player then presses down on keys and holes to produce different pitches similar to a recorder. The clarinet can play low notes and high notes, making it a great all around instrument. The clarinet can play both melody and harmony parts within an ensemble and helps fill out the sound of the group.
Clarinet players can also switch between various clarinet instruments in the band or orchestra such as bass clarinet, Eb clarinet, and much more for clarinet choirs! The clarinet is made up of six parts including the reed and ligature, which holds the reed in place.
Why Take Private Clarinet Lessons?
Students who play clarinet in their school bands are highly encouraged to study the instrument privately to deepen their understanding and skills of the instrument and music in general. A private lesson teacher can not only help the student play music and exercises from concert band, but can also help learn more techniques and solo repertoire for solo/ensemble contests and auditions.
