Emma came home with something new today. She's in band again this year, and her band teacher thought Emma could branch out from playing the clarinet to playing the bass clarinet this year. The thing is huge.
The bass clarinet is being provided by the school, so we don't have to rent that too. Thank goodness.
She's been honking away on the giant thing all afternoon. The fingering is the same, and she will still be using the treble clef. Emma still wants to keep up with the clarinet, so she doesn't have to haul the bigger instrument when marching band begins.
