Clarinet Lessons for Beginners

Assembly and care of the clarinet, ligature, reed placement, and maintenance are covered with all beginning students. Beginning students will also learn tone production, proper embouchure, breath control, phrasing and fingerings leading to simple melodies. Technical exercises and in-lesson examples will ensure the student has an understanding of the unique registers of the instrument and an increasing ability to play music of different styles and complexities. Private clarinet instruction is an important supplement to school bands and ensembles
