Here's the Most Frequently Asked Questions we receive about the Clarinet School

What is the difference between jazz clarinet and classical clarinet?

Should students start with clarinet or saxophone?

How much does the student need to practice?

What are music examinations?

What is the difference between jazz clarinet and classical?

The clarinet is commonly linked to both jazz and classical styles. So what type of music do beginner clarinet students learn? Students start off learning how to read notes and will play simple tunes from both jazz composers and classical composers. After several lessons, students will then be able to select which style of music they wish to pursue or whether they want to maintain a mix of both.

For students who want to complete clarinet exams, Shine Music School provides both classical and jazz exams. Classical exams are facilitated by the Australian Music Examinations Board ( AMEB) and Jazz exams are facilitated by the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music UK ( ABRSM). Both have excellent syllabuses and are well balanced to encompass both reading and aural skills. Feel free to call us on (02) 96879978 if you have any questions about any of the classical exams.

Should students start with clarinet or saxophone?

Both instruments are beautiful instruments and are very popular band instruments for schools. It is recommended that when choosing which instrument to start with, it is again a preference of sound and instrument. Choose the instrument that the student is most likely to be interested in practicing.

A helpful hint is to visit your local music cd store and sample some clarinetists and saxophonists to listen to the difference in tone of the instruments. For students under eight, Shine Music School recommends starting out with the clarinet since it is a much lighter instrument than the saxophone.

How much does the student need to practice?

Practicing everyday is the most effective and fastest way of improving your skills as a musician. If you practice only every now and then, your improvement will be inconsistent. Even with just 10 minutes every day, you will notice an improvement week to week. Of course, the longer you practice every day, the better, 30 minutes is a good goal to aim for, as long as it is everyday!

What are music examinations?

Music examinations are a good tool for students who want to continually improve their playing and performance ability and to have their playing ability graded on a recurring basis. Music examinations allow students to grade their performance ability every six months ( certain instruments ), provides goals for students to aim for and provides a professional grading system for students. Shine Music School encourages exams but are not enforced on students. Our primary aim is for students to have fun exploring their chosen instrument.

Students are only encouraged to attempt examinations when they have attained a certain level of competence and ability. At Shine Music School, all our teachers are Australian Music Examinations Board ( AMEB ) , Contemporary Popular Music ( CPM) and Associated Board of the Royal School of Music ( ABRSM UK) registered and we cater for Jazz, Rock, Pop and Classical exams for all instruments.
