Definition

This instrument belongs to the woodwind family.

It uses a single reed, which is attached to a plastic mouthpiece. This is placed between the lips, and the air travels between the reed and the plastic mouthpiece, and into the instrument.

The clarinet is played in orchestras, wind bands and jazz groups.
