I would love the get my 7 year old daughter started playing the clarinet. I
have tried and tried to get her to make a single note/sound but have been
unsuccessful so far. She is willing to learn, but like any child of this
age, short attention span and frustration from lack of results quickly makes
her loose interest.

What can I do to get her to make a sound? What mouthpieces are best for a
beginner? What reed strength should I start her off with….2, 21/2??

I know that once I get her to play (even a single) note, she will quickly
gain enthusiasm and I will have her well on her way to learning the
clarinet.

Thanks in advance,
Vic Brincat
