    Johann Christoph Denner created the clarinet soon after 1698 (Barrett, G. 1999) (Adullah, M et al. 2015). The clarinet is a woodwind instrument with a single reed. A clarinet has many different keys, and each of them helps produce a different note. “The keys were of brass, sometimes of silver and the springs were of brass.” (Barrett, G. 1999). It is an instrument that is somewhat quiet compared to others, but it can be played loudly if the player desires. “While almost every other woodwind instrument has a conical bore the clarinet has a cylindrical bore – it doesn’t flare, even though the bell of the clarinet gives that impression.” (Denner, J. 2008). Overall, the clarinet is a unique creation by Denner. Denner innovated the clarinet with…

    band, piece that has been played and enjoyed by advanced high school and university bands. The scoring is dense and somewhat atypical, however. Jenkins includes a sting bass, a cello, three baritone parts, three flute parts, and four clarinet and trombone parts. Jenkins includes the string bass part because is important to the texture of the piece. The tuba cues, like all the cues in the piece, are “safety doublings” and “should be played only in the absence of the instrument shown”. The…

    The first song was called Joy Ride. It started of very strong with crashing cymbals and a loud drum. It was very powerful and had really good harmony all together.

    "The only thing keeping you from your goal is the *bleep* story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it.” I had been playing the clarinet since fifth grade. I thought I was a very proficient musician and I was the best clarinetist ever. My confidence in my playing was very high. One can say “I was arrogant when it came to my instrument”. My sophomore year a potential new band director was visiting my school. On the day he arrived, my curiosity had the best of me and I hastened…

    march stand out from others. The instruments that grabbed my attention the most were the trumpets and timpani as they were featured more and the piece and were also the loudest out of all the instruments. By the end of the piece, I felt very patriotic as the piece felt like a march that would be performed after winning a major battle. “The Wind Quintet, Op. 43” (1922) by Carl Nielsen was a unique performance in the program as it only featured five performers. It was a special performance by…

    My uncle had owned two clarinets and said that he could give me one of them, so I decided to play the clarinet. The first piece I played in the band was “Can’t take my eyes off from you”, a song sang by Franky Valli. I still can recall the excitement when I first joined rehearsal. I was so impressed and got a tingle. I felt that I finally found what I can be enthusiastic about, and playing in the band became my priority. Although I liked playing in the band, there were struggles as well. There…

    The thought of becoming a delinquent band nerd–I had a slight bias as an orchestra kid–gave me anxiety; my comfort zone was with the dulcet sound of strings, not the harsh, shrill cacophony of woodwinds and brass. Instead of the nice, calm orchestra community, I was entering the world of “this one time, at band camp...” and nasty spit valves. Nevertheless, I had to get past my preconceived opinions about band and choose a new instrument. Woodwinds were my first choice, but the flute and clarinet…
