Clarinet – Sheet Music, Tuition & Scores

"Some people, they remember that they used to play clarinet, and they remember the squeaks of the clarinet... People need to remember what a beautiful instrument it is." Anat Cohen, Grammy-Nominated Clarinetist

Despite the odd squeak here and there, the clarinet is a very approachable instrument, and can make some of the most beautiful sounds in classical, jazz and pop music alike. Whether you are looking for Clarinet for Beginners, or some Concert Repertoire for Clarinet, or you want to explore the wonderful jazz world of Benny Goodman, take a look at our sheet music, tuition books and scores today, and show the world what a beautiful instrument the clarinet really is.

The descendant of the Medieval French Chalumeau, the first clarinet was built in Nürnberg in the early eighteenth century by Johann Christoph Danner. The clarinet is generally made of Grenadilla, an African blackwood. After evolving through the previous century, in the mid nineteenth century, Theolbald Boehm used his work with the flute to develop the key & ring mechanism which turned the clarinet into the instrument we recognise today.
