Whether you are drawn to the robust sound of an orchestra or genres such as swing jazz, the clarinet is an essential component of both. An excellent instrument for beginners and advanced musicians alike, Greenwich Music’s clarinet lessons focus on beginning and expanding upon our students’ relationships with the instrument and the music alike. Together, you and your instructor can collaborate to determine and reach your desired style and skill level.
