What are you going to learn?

Tom and Sophie teach you everything you need to know to play your instrument properly. Of course you will learn the correct blowing and finger technique by practicing a lot. But you also learn how to select or work a good reed, which mouthpiece to use and how to maintain your instrument. So too much to mention.

Depending on your level, you can quickly get acquainted with playing together with other musicians in the beginners bandor concert band of HCT.

Clarinet lessons for children and adults

The lessons are for young and old, from beginner to advanced! Everyone can learn to play this beautiful instrument. And can you already play a nice piece? Tom and Sophie still have a lot to teach you!

The lessons with our teachers are intended for you to later play in our orchestra. First in the entry-level orchestra and later, when the right level has been reached, in the concert band. As a student you also become a member of HCT.

Don't own a clarinet yet?

That's no problem. As a member of HCT you can borrow an instrument for free! (If in stock)
