Introducing Flopsy the Whimsical Clown

Flopsy the Whimsical Clown

 

Flopsy the Whimsical Clown is a good friend of Clarobotoo. He will appear in many songs in the Beginning Clarinet Songbook. He can also help you learn the names of the pitches on the clarinet with Flopsy the Whimsical Clown's Pitch Name Games. The games will not only help you learn the names of the notes, but they will improve your music reading skills. This would be a good time to start with Game 1, which focuses on C, D, and E -- all of the notes in these songs.
