The clarinet is a member of the woodwind family. Sound is produced by a vibrating single reed which is the same sound producing method as the saxophone. Other similarities to the saxophone make the clarinet a good starting instrument for students who may want to move to the saxophone later on.
Its warm tone and expressive capabilities are suited to a variety of musical styles. It is used in classical as well as in popular music and in jazz and played by hundreds of thousands of professionals and amateurs alike, world wide. The large clarinet family ranges from the contrabass, which plays the lowest range of notes, to the piccolo clarinet, which plays the highest.
