Possibly the most popular woodwind instrument, the clarinet is capable of playing with incredible sensitivity and producing technical fireworks, all wrapped up in a silky-smooth sound. Students who learn the clarinet are able to perform with the Symphony Orchestra, Premier Concert Band and Wind Band.
Due to strong competition, it is not always a the best choice for a beginner in Form 3 - there is usually more room to shine playing a more unusual instrument. However, if you love the sound and are determined to succeed do not let anything stand in your way!
The clarinet is taught by Mr Uren - click here to enrol in clarinet lessons. Instrument hire can be arranged through the Music department, subject to availability - please contact Mrs Mackenzie, the Music department administrator, for further information.
