Interested in renting a clarinet for your school band this upcoming year? Well, you’ve come to the right place. High School Music Service has been providing musical instrument rentals and lessons, especially the clarinet, to the San Antonio area since we started.
Unsure, if a clarinet is right for you? Below are some quick facts about clarinets, feel free to call our store if you need clarification or stop in.
The clarinet is part of the woodwind family and is classified as a single-reeded aero phone with keys. The clarinet is about twice as big as a recorder and consists of several parts held together. The instrument originated around the 1700s and is an off-shoot of the chalumeau, a very simple shepherds instrument that could only play one octave. The modern clarinet was built by C H Denner, a resident of Germany and can play a full range of notes.
