Virtual Clarinet Resources for Band Directors
Since so many students are home with virtual learning for 2020-2021, I would like to support Bb soprano and bass clarinet students and band directors as best as I can during this challenging time. Here are the following free resources that I am offering through The Clarinet Project:
Both Bb Soprano and Bass Clarinet Resources
Three times a month I host Ask a Clarinet Teacher Live Streams on YouTube. These live streams are a great way for students to ask me their clarinet questions and get advice. Think of it as a free virtual masterclass. Many times clarinet teachers and band directors show up as well to ask me specific questions to help their students. There are also band directors who have students attend theses livestreams and write up a report about what they learned as a supplement to their band curriculum. Please have your students subscribe to The Clarinet Project YouTube channel so that they get notifications about upcoming live streams so that they don't miss them.
I have many free warm-ups, songs, exercises, and scales sheet music pdfs available at The Clarinet Project MuseScore page, most of which have video tutorials on how to play them.
Not just fun memes and videos, The Clarinet Project Instagram posts tips and tricks to improve students' clarinet-playing, product reviews, interviews with influential clarinet players, and product giveaways such as reeds, ligatures, and sheet music.
The Clarinet Project FaceBook page shares informational articles, important or interesting upcoming clarinet events, and product reviews and giveaways.

Send your new students here. In these detailed videos for first-time clarinet players, I will show them how to properly put their clarinets together, put on the reed and ligature without breaking the reed, play their first notes, how to articulate correctly, and learn their first few songs.
The Clarinet Project features short clarinet mini lessons on fundamentals such as embouchure, playing high notes, hand position, and much more. This playlist is updated regularly with new technique and fundamental videos.
