Unité 1 parlez-vous français, Le critère C et D à l’oral


Task: create a role play to include all of the information you have learned since the beginning of the year.

Challenges of working with a partner: There was none, Cyrus was my partner, he was a good partner we got everything done quickly and he help on my pronunciation although even when he help me my pronunciation was still a bit of course.

Overall I was happy with my score because I have no experience with french and I learned a lot. I was expecting this score.

My instrument choice….clarinet

The clarinet sounds a bit like the recorder except lower, they are part of the woodwind family the members of the woodwind family would sound similar,

The sound of the clarinet is made by putting your mouth to the mouthpiece your lower lip against the reed and blowing with the right amount of strength not too hard not to soft, and using your fingers to cover holes, the number of holes you cover will determine the note and the pitch that is played when blowing. you don’t want the clarinet to be to high or too low or else the sound will not come a well and you don’t want to squeeze your mouth to hard on the mouthpiece or you will, again mess up the sound, use natural but controlled breathing or the sound the comes up might be shaky.

here are the notes of the clarinet, Image result for the notes on a clarinet

 assembling the clarinet,

1.Lick the reed or dip it in some water but the moisture should only be on the thin side of the reed which is the whiter part of it

2. Slip the reed onto the flat side of the mouth piece, the height should be as tall as the the top of the mouth piece then after that slip the ligature over it wrapping the reed to the clarinet, the ligature is that metal part you see in the picture

3. Join the barrel joint on to the mouth piece

4. Then connect the upper joint with the barrel joint, you want the side with one hole the align to the flat side of the mouth piece.

5. Connect the lower joint with the upper joint make sure the holes align and there will be a place where the metal connects, if the metal does not connect it means you didn’t connect right.

6. Connect the bell on.

Cleaning your clarinet

1.Use a polish cloth but make sure you don’t put water on any part of the clarinet, just use your polish cloth to wipe down any dirty things.

2.Use a pull through swab and pull it through the clarinet do not clean the mouth piece with this, you put the pull through swab string first into all parts of the clarinet except the mouth piece then pull it through so the towel sweeps through the insides of the clarinet.

3.The reed does not to need to be washed but it needs to be stored in a container so it can be protected from the weather or from breaking.
