Whether a student learning the clarinet or just a fan of the sound and character of the instrument, there is a huge range of clarinet music available for learning and enjoyment, ranging from late Baroque/early Classical to modern day jazz. Many famous composers have chosen to write for the clarinet, as a solo instrument or as part of an ensemble.
Many composers have chosen to write solo music for the clarinet, including clarinet concertos, sonatas and solos in jazz pieces, especially big band music. Some of the most famous of this type of music are pieces written by Mozart, Brahms and Weber in terms of classical music, and Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw for the jazz world. Clarinet is also a popular choice for chamber music, which is instrumental music written for a small number of players. With its flexible sound, the clarinet pairs well with all types of instrumental groupings, though traditionally it is favored for use with the horn, the viola and soprano or alto singers.
Once a clarinet player has decided upon a piece of music they would like to learn, there are various ways of getting a copy of the sheet music. Many pieces are now available as free downloads from the internet. Otherwise, almost all pieces are available for sale as hard copy sheet music, though some rarer pieces will periodically out of print. Many publishers will produce books of music for the clarinet containing many different pieces, often grouped by ability level or musical era.
