There are usually two types of clarinets available, wood and plastic. Plastic clarinets are less expensive, but a wood clarinet is certain to be more durable and last longer. A wood clarinet will also produce a warmer and more professional sound. We suggest visiting your local music store and speaking to the professionals there to find out which instrument would best suit the needs of your student, and your current budget. Once you are working with a Musika Clarinet teacher, the teacher can also provide you suggestions with the best clarinet models or the best stores to get your instrument locally. Every clarinet should come with 5 basic parts: the bell, the lower joint, the upper joint, the barrel, and the mouthpiece. Make sure to inspect the instrument and be sure it includes these things.
In home clarinet lessons are extremely convenient for parents and students alike. Studying in home is no different than studying in a studio. Lessons are generally once a week.
Our teachers create a custom lesson plan for each student studying clarinet. Clarinet lessons are useful for many students taking band or woodwinds during school. They will focus on how to prepare the instrument for playing, how to hold the clarinet, how to read music, and common musical styles which use the clarinet.
Many adult students choose to take the clarinet, even with no previous experience. Clarinet can be a wonderful instrument to learn for the first time and a lot of progress can be made as long as the student is practicing! Clarinet can be a very satisfying instrument to learn as an adult because it takes a lot of lung capacity and skill to play clarinet.
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.
