Clarinet Sheet Music



By Kristy Annely

One of the most prolific composers was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who wrote music for several instruments including the clarinet. The clarinet is an instrument that belongs to the family of the woodwind. It is comprised of four hollow pieces of ebony, a barrel, upper and lower joints and a bell, which fit together to make a musical assemblage.

Clarinet sheet music is different than other r sheet music, since the clarinet has a limited tone production. Unlike the piano, which is called the "mother" of all instruments, the clarinet is distinguished between various types of flats. In music, a flat is used to reduce the semitone that produces a lower pitch. The clarinet needs that flat to accommodate its performance and play. There are various kinds of clarinets found including the E Flat, Bass and Alto B Flat, A Major, A Flat, C Major and D Flat. Most people prefer the B Flat clarinet.

Orchestras use clarinets according to the type of music they intend to play. Clarinets cannot be used to play all notes on a regular music sheet. They need to have special music sheets that contain clarinet notes. The B Flat sheet music is specifically written to contain notes that can be played in that style. Clarinet sheet music is very specific, and yet players can play high notes that may not be on the sheet music or "music score." Today, clarinet sheet music is played in various styles of music -- namely classical, jazz and gospel. A clarinet player must remember the type of music, as every style has its own notes, description and forma. With growing computer software programs, clarinet music is now available on the Internet and can be downloaded and played.
