The Clarinet Institute of Los Angeles

This is one of the most unique and useful websites that the Internet provides for woodwind players. Started by L.A.–based clarinetist David Schoor, the Institute offers woodwind, string and brass players access to a huge reservoir of music and recordings. Much of the music is free and additional music and recordings are available via flash drives and DVDs. A great deal of the clarinet music is available to be downloaded for free from this site including pedagogical studies; solo clarinet works; compositions for clarinet & piano; chamber music; and music for clarinet & orchestra/band. The Archives page on the site makes available a very formidable amount of sheet music and mp3 files of mainstay literature for all of the instruments at nominal prices. In addition, 225 rare early jazz recordings can be purchased via the Institute’s Jazz & Swing Clarinet DVD. For professional players, teachers, and students alike, this site is a no-brainer—you need to become familiar with it. Enjoy.
