im just beginning clarinet. and i know how to read music but my clarinet teacher had told me to play all the notes an octave lower then what it is now. just so i can play the music a little easier until i learn the octave notes later on.
well...he is out of town for the next three weeks and i would really like some help.
i was wondering if theres any site any of you know of that i can find how to write the notes an octave lower. or just give me some tips. because im sure its really easy i just dont know where to begin.

Hi,I'm a clarinet player- its an awesome instrument hey! Putting down an octave is really easy...I hope this gets to you before your teacher get back- I forgot to check the date!
An octave down is the same note but down lower. eg- if there is a C in the middle space of the treble clef (FACE for the spaces), to put it down an octave you would put the C on the first ledger line under the stave (middle C). the note is exactly the same- a C stays a C, D a D etc, but it just goes down....
I hope this is helpful, its so hard to demonstrate without a stave in front of me!
ok, I know its huge but heres a website that shows it
the first one is meant to be a C - it would be an octave down.
Good luck, I hope this helped!
