 Re: Barrel Question

Why is the 440 Hz standard so important? What do clarinet students in Berlin learn to match? What about students in Moscow or Leningrad? Does every bar band in the U.S. (not to mention the world) play at A=440? Did Bach's organ play at A=440?

Of course, a good musical result depends on having the notes of your clarinet be in tune with each other. That's not what the OP started out asking about. His teacher said he was flat and needed a shorter barrel. He may be flat to 440, but where is the harm if he's playing at 436 or 438, unless he's playing with other players and everyone needs to be tuning to the same pitch?
