This is a tutorial on how to tune a Bb Clarinet.

Step 1: Items



Clarinet player

Step 2: Assemble Clarinet

Assemble your clarinet. If you do not know how to do this here is a quick video. I did not make this video.


Step 3: Set Tuner

Set your tuner to 440.

Step 4: Tune

Hold the note C (thumb, pointer finger, middle finger, ring finger).

Step 5: Compensate

If you are sharp or right of the middle, pull the barrel out a bit.

If you are flat or left of the middle tighten your mouth and blow a little harder also push in all joints.

Step 6: All Done

When your clarinet is tuned the tuner should be in the middle while you hold your note.
