 finger technics for clarinet
Author: cherry

I got my last clarinet lesson about 10 years ago, so I forgot some things which were maybe never directly tought. (I also should take lessons again but this but for now my very basic question:)
Is it necessary in order to develop good finger technics
- to cover the wholes exactly with the tips of your fingers and not just with the first part of the fingers (which I don't, especially with the index of the right hand) and
- to make the little fingers round so that you also just use the very tip of them to touch the key??

Thanks for answering!

Cover the holes with the prints of the fingers and keep them close to the keys covering with the tips leads to leaks and squeeks. The shorter the distance the fingers have to move the faster you can play. Whatever you do though have fun.

Peace on Earth and May You always have a reed that PLAYS.
