Clarobotoo Practices at His Home Overlooking the Sea

Clarobotoo Practicing at His Home Overlooking the Sea

 

Clarobotoo loves practicing, especially since the more he practices, the farther his flying car can go (look back to Song #6 of Lesson 2 for more info). Clarobotoo's practice room is acoustically engineered so that he can hear himself very clearly when he plays his clarinet. It's always important to listen carefully to yourself when you play!

Clarobotoo only plays metal clarinets. To find out more about metal clarinets, you can visit Kyle Coughlin's website.
