Many teachers teach their students to play the clarinet using the same methods and method books that they used when first learning to play. It is important, however, for teachers to be aware of new methods and approaches for teaching today’s students. Using the National Standards of Music, Comprehensive Musicianship, innovative methods and supplementary materials, teachers can teach good clarinet fundamentals and musicianship in a manner that will engage today’s students. By using innovative clarinet teaching methods, providing more ensemble and playing experiences, and helping students to develop a love of and appreciation for the clarinet and music, teachers will have more students who are passionately committed to music and sharing music with others.
