Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best age to begin clarinet lessons?

Any time is a great time to start music lessons, but I recommend age 8 because at that point the student is able to take on the responsibility of regular practice and will be able to progress at a steady pace.  Also with clarinet, it can take a bit of endurance to develop a strong embouchure needed to play for long periods of time
