Clarinet and Bass Clarinet Lessons

The European-born clarinet has an important role in the history of jazz, starting with the New Orleans sound in the first part of the 20th century. Its greatest visibility was in the Swing Era of the 30s and 40s, but clarinet players have brought it through Bebop and into current day.
