Clarinet Lessons Acacia Gardens

The Clarinet is a family of woodwind instruments, having a single-reed mouthpiece, straight cylindrical tube and a flaring bell.

A person who plays this instrument is called a Clarinetist or Clarinettist.

The clarinet is Italian for trumpet. The reason for the name is that “it sounded from far off not unlike a trumpet”.

There are some different types of clarinets of differing sizes and pitches. “Clarinet” usually refers to the Bb soprano clarinet, by far the most common type, which has a large range of nearly four octaves.

The clarinet family is the largest woodwind family, with more than a dozen types.

Today, the clarinet is used in jazz and classical ensembles, in chamber groups, and as a solo instrument.
