Students can purchase a wooden or plastic clarinet for their use. Wooden clarinets are more durable and will last longer. Most clarinets will come with a sturdy case. We suggest that students visit a local music store for tips on buying a clarinet, as clarinets come in different sizes and types and prices can vary. A clarinet kit comes with the bell, the lower joint, the upper joint, the barrel, and the mouthpiece.

The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Each student will have a custom lesson plan created for them by their instructor. Our teachers will generally recommend specific method books that students can purchase for use in their lessons. Students will learn how to read music, how to sight read, musicianship skills, and the specific skills needed to play the clarinet and support the sound.
Taking clarinet lessons as an adult is a great way to learn a new skill. Many of our adult students may have played clarinet as a child, and want to pick it back up again. Adult students can generally notice a lot of progress in a short time, provided they are practicing every day between their lessons.
Children generally begin to learn the clarinet at age 7 or 8. We suggest this age, because the student needs to be able to hold the instrument correctly and support its weight. The students fingers need to be the right size to play instrument, and the child needs to have enough lung capacity to support the sound of this instrument.
