i lost my regular mouth piece for a B flat clarinet and not enough time to buy a new one. is an Alto clarinet mouthpiece going to fit on a B flat clarinet?

Sheet Music Written For Clarinets

Did you know that different types of instruments require different sorts of sheet music? Take the clarinet for example. A clarinet falls in the woodwind family meaning that traditionally it was made of wood and used a reed to be able to produce music. It is made up of four parts. These include (from bottom to top) the bell, the body, the barrel and the mouthpiece. The mouthpiece itself holds the reed in place with another piece known as the reed guard. This instrument can produce beautiful music but with a major distinction from others. It can only produce various flat tones.

Sheet music produced for the clarinet reflects this difference. A flat is a note that is used to reduce the semitone which produces a lower pitch. It is this flat which is integral to its performance. There are many different clarinets that are available in different keys. These include D Flat, C Major, A Flat, A Major, Bass and Alto B Flat and E Flat clarinets. The most commonly preferred type is the B Flat clarinet however.

The type of music an orchestra plays is what determines how they will make use of clarinets. The sheet music for the clarinets will reflect the notes that are particular to their instrument. They cannot play all the notes that might be found on a normal sheet of music. For example, the B Flat sheet music is written in such a way that it will contain notes that can be played in that particular key. Interestingly enough, clarinet sheet music may be very exacting but there are players that can easily play high notes that often times may not be found on the particular sheet of music they are using. A wide number of musical styles today make use of the clarinet. From big band music to even some rock and roll great clarinet players could conceivably find themselves playing nearly any venue available.

One thing to keep in mind is that a clarinet player must remember that each type of music will have its own particular forma, notes and improvisational styles. While sheet music for certain instruments were once hard to come by today there are many different sources that are available. From downloadable sheet music to website stores that specialize in it musicians can now get most any musical score they would like. It does not matter if you are looking for a vintage piece from the big band swing era to a clarinet part from a big Broadway musical you will most likely be able to easily find what you are looking for.

The first thing you will want to do in searching for the piece you would like is to check with local music supply shops around your area. If they do not carry what you are looking for then they may be able to either order it for you or tell you where you might go to find it. If you are not able to find a piece locally then you can find any number of online sources by using your choice of Internet search engine and typing in the keywords you are looking for. Soon you will be playing away on that piece and enjoying every minute of it.
