Clarinets that aren't well handled and well maintained may cause a whole lot of difficulties, including lack of reaction, squeaking, excessive resistance and poor key coordination. Therefore, learning to take care of a clarinet correctly is extremely crucial, and coaching scholars how to maintain their instruments can create lifelong good habits. I still bring together and disassemble my clarinet just as my basic school band director taught me. The method can seem obvious, but actually, if done incorrectly, it can be the source of many issues. Forcing tight tenons in combination or keeping the clarinet incorrectly during meeting may cause bent keys and fixed joints. There are two vital things young scholars must keep in mind while assembling the clarinet. The first is to place the higher and lower joints in combination with no bending the bridge key, and the second one is to put the barrel on in the proper path. When placing the upper and lower joints in combination, allow the higher joint of the clarinet to rest in the palm of the left hand, with the lower tenon near the wrist. The front of the clarinet will be facing up, and the palm of the hand can be gently cradling the back of the joint just below the register key. Then curve the palms around the front of the joint and press the keys so that the bridge mechanism opens or lifts. Doing this lets you slip the lower joint bridge key under the upper joint bridge key.
