Run tepid water during the mouthpiece about once a week, overlaying the cork up to possible. To remove white deposits, soak the end of the mouthpiece in lemon juice. Remove all water from tone holes by utilizing pad paper. Long ago we used cigarette paper. The same paper is now accessible as pad drying paper just so young students
may get it easily from music stores. Drying the clarinet effectively will keep it clean and also help evade cracks from constructing
in a wood bodied device. Teaching this to students who have plastic clarinets can assist be sure that they continue to dry their contraptions wholly when they finally step up to wood. Make sure that your youngest students know the way to position the parts of the tool back into its case accurately. The upper and lower joints must fit into the case in the accurate path in order for it to shut appropriately, and the case should not ever be forced shut like an overstuffed suitcase.
