I have a clarinet that has been in my family for 50 years, it is a Noblet. My daughter is currently playing it and we have had it overhauled. The problem is that her teacher says they don't make music for her type of clarinet and that the clarinet doesn't play B flats. Could this be true, should I look to buy a new clarinet.

Noblet is avery good horn. You may have an "A" clarinet instead of Bb. An "A" clarinet is slightly longer than a Bb. All wind band music is written for Bb clarinet. If you have an A clar. then her band director is right. You may need to take it to a music dealer to find out for sure. If you assemble it and lay it next to another students horn and it is a little longer then it is in A.
