The sound from a clarinet can evoke unparalleled emotion, (if played well!) by any other instrument save the saxophone. Clarinet artists such as Artie Shaw or Bennie Goodman could go the scales and get your toes tapping or draw tears to your eyes, depending on the mood of the music. In this beginners class, I will teach you the basics of mouth placement and muscle use, proper breath control and posture, finger placement and the start of learning different key scales, as well as some alternate keys for notes. I will also cover basic music reading, going over beat counts, tempo, sharps and flats and basic music terminology.

About Jennifer K.

I have been playing clarinet for 22 years, the first 7 of those as a student, the rest as a home teacher and spare band member at times, and always practicing and improving. My first band teacher told me that no matter how many years you play, you will never stop learning because there is no end to the music. I took that to heart and haven't stopped playing.

I love music and the emotions it can provoke. It can set the stage or take you back in time or make you smile. Sometimes, it can even make you cry. It can be therapeutic and life changing. A beautiful solo to a sad sonata, an uplifting ballad to a calming concerto, music truly can change you.

Learning to play it can help you release all the creativity that has been locked inside of you, just waiting to burst forth! Let me help you begin your journey into the world of music by learning the basics of the clarinet!
