My Instrument Choice

Hi! I am in my first Music lesson with Mr O’Toole

We are supposed to pick an instrument that we want to learn for the remainder of the Music Fine Arts Rotation. I chose Clarinet because I think that it would be cool to learn. I also have never tried it.

Here is some information:

HOW TO SET UP THE CLARINET

  1. Open the case. You want to make sure that the case is on the right side otherwise all the pieces will fall and they might break
  2. When you open the case, You take the reed and put it in your mouth. Suck on it until it is wet (slightly).
  3. Take the longest piece of the clarinet. That is the bottom piece. Then take the bell.
  4. Fasten the bell and the bottom piece together.
  5. Then take the top piece of the clarinet. Fasten it onto the bottom piece and the bell.
  6. Take the mouthpiece and then put it onto the barrel.
  7. Put the mouthpiece part onto the bell part.
  8. Take the reed out of your mouth and put it onto the flat surface on the mouthpiece.
  9. Take the ligature and then use it to fasten the reed onto the mouthpiece. The tighteners go on the right.

THAT WAS HOW YOU SET UP YOUR CLARINET
