Starting the Clarinet: Why play an instrument?

  • To become good at an instrument you have to first have an understanding of music as a form of expression.

  • The most important part of being successful in playing an instrument is to feel completely relaxed and natural, as if the instrument were an extension of your body.

  • The instrument should be a tool for your musical expression, and an extension of your musical voice. . .


The Essence of a Wind Instrument: Airflow

  • Before learning any technique, a student should learn how to produce a sound using his or her airflow.

  • Long tones and control of ones air is essential when playing a wind instrument.

  • Start by trying to produce a sound with just the mouthpiece and see how long you could hold the note, as well as how steady you could the pitch.


Embouchure: the complete control of ones airflow

  • Developing a good embouchure is essential to becoming a fine clarinetist.

  • There are many schools on embouchure cosmetics: the only thing that is clear is that the embouchure is the tool in which a beautiful tone is produced.


Technique: The Fingers

  • The clarinet has a wide range, as shown below. To achieve full continuity in all ranges, the airflow, embouchure, and fingers all have to work together.
