Love the mellow, warm tone of the clarinet? Or the jazzy notes of the saxophone?
Melt the hearts of all who hear with the clarinet! Clarinet is best started at around 8-9 years of age, but in the meantime, starting with the recorder will give you a head start!
Learning phrasing and breathing the right way will enhance your musical expression. Our expert tutors will teach you to attach and replace your reeds and learn the fingering of the notes you’d like to play.
