 RE: teaching alternate fingerings

This is an interesting question. I am not an instructor, but I do have kids that play the clarinet so I am aware of the problems they can have with reach.

Personally, I generally would play this with RH B, because as you add sharps to the key signature you will soon need the D#.

It is unfortunate that kids who don't take lessons (and some that do) don't learn the important alternate fingerings like the first space F# with the right first finger or the throat Bb with the same finger.
