The clarinet is a beautiful instrument in its own right and a great choice for young musicians, especially if they’re moving on from their first recorder. It’s versatile, easy to look after and fits in with practically every musical style, from classical to folk and jazz. Composers like Mozart and Brahms have written some of their best music for the instrument. Why not listen to Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf – you’ll be captivated by the sound of the clarinet playing the cool and wily cat!
Pick up a music stand, really useful for practicing at home and performing anywhere else. A chromatic tuner could help you stay in tune with your fellow musicians.
Why stop at one instrument? The cornet is a great beginner’s instrument, and the recorder is perfect for little fingers. If you need some accompaniment, try the piano or keyboards – we’ve got a great collection with piano stools to match.
