Hi! For this is Mitch Kaplan. In this clip we will be talking about sound. The range of the clarinet is from low E below the staff to the high C, it sounds like this… Some people can go higher, and some people can even extend, some people have a lower fingering to make it sound a little lower, but here is a higher note, here is high E, here is F, etc., I would not hurt you with the rest. The different sounds can happen by making a clarinet sound go from soft to loud. This is a soft version… and now a louder one… and now we are going to talk about some styles that you can play with the clarinet. The first style that I would like to present is our little jazz, this is Dixieland, you may have heard it in the first clip… The next style that I would like to play is a little classical. Now for different styles you have to have a different sound, so a little more methodical would be how you would approach a classical piece… The third style would be the marching band style, this is a kind of like a cross between the Dixieland and the classical… and there you have it.
