Graham Lyons's 40 years experience as a teacher of clarinet gave him the overwhelming conviction that the way the standard clarinet was designed was anything but child-friendly. "It was too heavy," says Lyons "and its holes were too large for young children. The standard clarinet comes out of its case in five pieces, which have to be carefully assembled. That's a disincentive to practise."

"Furthermore it can not withstand the lack of care that children often give their possessions. A large proportion of school clarinets were always at the repairers. What was needed was a clarinet for children, designed without these barriers to progress. After all, the whole point of the music lesson is to inspire and motivate children with a love of music, not put them through an obstacle course."

The result was the Clarinéo: lighter, easier to manage, ready to play straight out of its case and resistant to rough treatment.

"Well, actually it wasn't all that simple!" Lyons continues, "The research and engineering excellence required to produce the Clarinéo kept a team of dedicated musicians and engineers hard at work for four years."

Particularly suited to very young beginners the Clarineo is all plastic and as such is much lighter. It uses Eb Clarinet reeds.


It is just what I needed to start a young pupil on the clarinet.
