I have a clarinet and i love it. If anyone out there is considering playing the clarinet, then i would say go for it. It is not a difficult instrument to learn, but i would also say ask someone wwho knows how to play to help you. Don't hold it to close to your body, but don't hold it like strait out either. Ask someone for help, but it is a wonderful instrument.

I've played the clarinet the longest out of the many instruments i now know- it was my first! It is definately my favorite instrument. It has such a large range of notes, and it can play practically any style of music. I love any book that may inspire young musicians
