 length and pitch
Author: Bubalooy 
Date:   2018-02-02 04:14

My daughter cannot get up to the pitch that other people in her school are playing. Her orchestra director has informed me that they tune at a=444, which I guess is not uncommon here in Germany. I may have to get her a shorter barrel. Is there a formula as to how much taking off a mm from the barrel lifts the pitch of the instrument. When I play her clarinet my pitch is higher than when she plays, but I can't think of any other way to bring her pitch up.
