 recorder/clarinet fingering
Author: Annes

A neighbor's 8 year old really wants to learn clarinet, but the parents don't have the resources at this time. If he learned to play a Hohn educator recorder, would the fingering be similar? Would it help or hinder his ultimate goal? Thanks

The clarinet's fingering in the clarion (middle register) roughly resembles that one of a soprano recorder, the chalumeau (lower register) that of an Alto recorder.

(speaking of resources - I hope the parents aren't intrigued to buy one of those ghastly cheap clarinet imitations - better get an overhauled (plastic) clarinet of a reputable maker (and seller). There are a lot of threads in the clarinet bboard about what to buy (or rather: what not to buy) when on a budget.)

The fingering on a recorder is different from that on a clarinet, in all the different registers. But learning to move your fingers to produce a note on the recorder will help in learning the clarinet later on.

I started out on recorder when I was seven. At 15, I started the Bb Clarinet. It does help to learn the fingerings and how to produce notes. The embochures are very similar.

What ???

The clarinet embouchure involves the teeth and lips, surrounding a mouthpiece which uses a reed and is started and stopped by the tongue.

The recorder embouchure is completely the opposite...GBK
