The Clarinéo is a beginner's instrument with a professional sound, designed to make playing a serious woodwind instrument easier than ever before.
Modern materials and technology have reduced the weight so that even a 6-year-old child can play comfortably. These benefits are not at the expense of tone or tuning.
Music: method book "First Steps with the Clarinéo" with CD backing tracks and DVD visual instruction. General music course combining Clarinéo with voice and percussion. Other music: 99% of music written in the treble clef. No need to transpose.
For decades elementary schools have taught our children the rudiments of music on the recorder. This has proven to be an incredible success, but the transition from recorder to band class has never been addressed with a real wind instrument that 6 to 10 year olds can play.
The Clarinéo bridges this critical stage in music education. It is a real instrument, fully chromatic with a band quality sound and the only instrument in the world that can truly prepare a young child for the clarinet, saxophone and other woodwind instruments.
Being in the key of 'C', the Clarinéo is a general music instrument, it can be played easily alongside the piano, guitar or other non-band instruments and sounds incredible, it really has to be heard to be believed. Although designed for children, sized for childrean and taught to children, the Clarinéo is a serious instruemtn that is being used by adult players and even professionals all around the world.
