As a struggling clarinet player myself, I remember wanting to quit band in sixth grade because I just couldn't get those darned high notes! I didn't get the relationship between the low notes and high notes, and I couldn't produce the sound when I added the register key.
This fingering chart for clarinets is designed to break down those barriers and help your new-ish clarinet players make it past the dreaded "break!" It is provided as a .jpg file and as a .pdf file for ease in printing. Please make sure to select the "Fit" setting on your printer if prompted.
This fingering chart shows the standard fingerings (not chromatic) for every note from Low E/High B to first space F/High C. Each fingering is shown once, with the staff above the image showing the high note pitch and its name, and the staff below the image showing the low note pitch and name. There are also several "tips and tricks" for helping student produce those high notes if they are understanding the fingerings but just can't get the new note to speak.
This chart is perfect for students at the end of their first year of playing and the beginning of their second year... or for any struggling student who is trying to catch up with their peers. The clarinet is an easy instrument to start on, but right when the flutes and trumpets start to shine and find things easy, the clarinets are hit with this challenge of crossing the break. This chart will make that transition easier for them... and you!
