Fingering charts are useful for beginners wanting to progress slightly quicker before their next lessons to see what they are going to learn next.

Black dots indicate the keys that should be covered and the white are keys that should be left open.

This particular fingering chart is for Bb clarinet reading in the key of Bb in the treble clef.

Different pieces of music will require you to use alternative fingerings. E.g. if it is a quick piece you may not have time to move your fingers to a particular fingering and you will need to use another one.

The first two rows are the lower octaves, which you will learn to play when you have just started learning the clarinet.

When you get to grade 2/3 you will start to learn the upper octaves and progress from there.
