Educational music for the Clarinet - Clarinet Study
Before you can make music on a clarinet, you go through a period of exercise and practicing, let's say hard work! Sometimes it went all right, sometimes you played like @#@#@#.
Most clarinet students start with a serious clarinet method book, adapted technical studies and selected pieces of sheet music ...
The books that you will use day in day out can be bought at your local music store. It's always better to have a hardcopy. Of course they can advise you, or you get the guidelines from your teacher.
Some of the books for beginners focus on popular tunes and easy playing (together with a CD), other books are more technical and traditional and demand for a great lot of discipline and hard work. So, it's up to you (and your teacher) to make your choice.
However, every clarinet player needs the basics for playing music. And no, studying scales and chords doesn't have to be dull ... just have a look at the books in our catalogue. Scales and chords in a jazzy way ... actually can be fun!
When you click on the "title" of each piece, a new window opens with the first page of the sheet music in PDF-format (Acrobat Reader). If you don't have this software installed on your computer, just click here. It's free. Of course you can freely download all the examples of these pieces for clarinet and piano.
