When I first started playing the clarinet, I had no idea what I was doing.
With a little practice and determination, I came to be a pretty good clarinet player.
I love to share my passion for the clarinet with people around me.





REEDS
When I was first beginning to play the clarinet, I had to have a lot of reeds on hand because I kept breaking them.
I used the cheaper ones at first and then the more expensive ones as I got better.
I also have fun, flavored ones that I practice with.

MUSIC STANDS
I tried propping music up on my clarinet case, it didn't work.
I tried playing the music when it was on the table, couldn't see it well.
I finally bought a music stand.
It was a really good investment for my playing because I wasn't frustrated.
I also got the floor protectors because my Mom would not have been happy if I scratched the floor.
