Clarinet Month in Fort Wayne!____
This month we are lucky to have Buffet Artist, Shawn Copeland, coming to Fort Wayne to present a masterclass! The event will be April 23 from 5:30-7 p.m. We will have a variety of clarinets to try and purchase, as well as a selection of clarinet accessories. Anyone who pre-registers by April 15, will recieve a free reed sampler!
Now through the end of the month, we will have specials on a large selection of intermediate-professional clarinets!! Brands include Buffet, Backun, Yamaha, and Selmer!
The Fort Wayne Youth Philharmonic will be having auditions for their upcoming season! This is a great ensemble for students looking to further their musical experience, and collaborate with some of the best musicians in the area!

Clarinet mouthpieces come in a varitey of styles! All mouthpieces are created in 3 basic styles with different facings. The Facing is the amount the mothpiece curves away from the reed.
1) Close Facing : most responive, typically brighter in sound, use harder reeds
2) Medium Facing : responive, full sound, use medium reeds
3) Open Facing : full sound, darker tone, use lighter reeds
Every player has a preference, so come into any Quinlan and Fabish and find the mouthpiece that best fits you!!
