  • Clarinet

    All are welcome for clarinet lessons at Scherzo Music School! Lessons can be once or twice a week in periods of 30, 45, or 60 minutes. School enrollment is ongoing with flexible scheduling during the summer and winter months.

    Introducing children to the benefits of music education can encourage personal development; clarinet lessons at Scherzo Music School do just that. The lessons focus on many aspects of musicality such as technique on the instrument, music theory, sight-reading, ear training, etc. Student and/or parent-set goals are encouraged and help to measure the progress of each student. These goals can include performing for peers, taking standardized music exams like the ABRSM. and/or performing in recitals - all options offered by Scherzo Music School!

    The Clarinet is a member of the woodwind family and is a standard instrument in concert bands and symphony orchestras. It is played by blowing through a mouthpiece. A single reed is fastened to the mouthpiece via a ligature and the reed vibrates as air goes through the horn, which creates the sound. Pressing different keys and opening and closing various tone holes are what create different pitches. 

    Finding time in one’s schedule for clarinet lessons as well as finding an effective instructor can be troublesome. Fortunately, Scherzo Music School works hard to oversee the education of each student.The school coordinators are available before and after lessons to help keep all parties up-to-date with the enrollment process and the progress of each student.

    If a student is without a clarinet one may easily be rented from the school due to Scherzo Music School's affiliation with Veritas Instrument Rentals Incorporated.
