Lesson books are all written to be sequential but many of them tend to rush the motor skills needed to master the range of notes. “First Songs for Band takes the approach that tone quality and musical phrasing are above all else. You will learn new musical concepts with each song and master the motor skills for the instrument’s range of notes. Students will be able to focus on musicality, tone, timing and reading because new notes are not added too quickly. “Musicality First”. FMI offers both beginning clarinet lessons at school or online clarinet lessons.
Instructional Video Support
The approach we take is truly a musicality first approach. There is an instructional video to accompany each line in the Beginning Clarinet book so your learning is well supported between lessons. Here is a YouTube Link to the Videos: (Instructional Videos for Clarinet)
