Clarinet Lessons Thornton CO Info:

First, many beginner students make the mistake of assuming that a few youtube videos will be a sufficient way to learn. The truth is, these resources work best as a supplement to a real lessons program. Also, we don’t want you to make the mistake of trying to teach yourself using online videos. We believe an in person instructor is by far the better option! Online lessons can not create custom programs. Subsequently, they can not answer your questions. In addition, video lessons can not make corrections. These items can save you countless hours. Bad habits can be very hard to un learn! Finally, get a good instructor, and a custom program to suit YOUR needs!

Clarinet Lessons and Music Theory Thornton CO:

Be aware that online lessons don’t teach you Music Theory. Also, Music Theory helps you understand what key you are in. It means understanding what the chords in that key are, and whether the chords follow a diatonic progression, or if there are substitute chords. The chord progression influences what scales, arpeggios, or licks may be played over those chords. You may be thinking “as a Clarinet player I don’t play chords”, which is true, but you DO play melodies over the chords. When you start playing it may be just reading some sheet music. However you also want to learn to improvise. This means you need to know the chemistry of the chords you are playing over which dictate the types of scales you can use.


Clarinet Lessons Thornton CO Helpful Info:

The clarinet is a member of the woodwind family. First, sound is produced by a vibrating single reed which is the same sound producing method as the saxophone. Also, other similarities to the saxophone make the clarinet a good starting instrument for students who may want to move to the saxophone later on. As with all instruments, the clarinet does require maintenance and cleaning. In addition, it comes in four pieces plus a reed and a ligature. The ligature is the clamp that hold the reed in place around the mouthpiece. The reed is the most delicate portion of the instrument. It’s very easy to chip a reed by bumping it against a music stand or clothing. Finally, even students who are very careful with their reeds will still need several replacements to get them through a year of band.

Communication Skills

Learning music theory is important not only so you can communicate with other musicians who do play the chords, it helps you understand the options available to you. First, you need to be aware of what intervals are available, what kind of scale to use to get the right flavors. Also you can learn how your melody impacts the whole band or ensemble. With our approach to lessons, you will get more mileage out of each song, because you learn the context, and how it applies!
