I recently found some great resources for free clarinet sheet music. Yes, FREE – for clarinet choir, quartet and quintet, duo, solo… Have a look and enjoy!
A wide selection of free sheet music for clarinet that you can view online and download as PDF.
Titles for clarinet solo, duet, trio and more, as well as clarinets in combination with other instruments in small groups.
The site has been around since 2000, and boasts more than 99,000 pieces of free sheet music.
Note from the site: “You should always respect the rights of use of these scores, please read the license page.”
The image on the left is a small preview of the number and types of free clarinet sheet music you’ll find on the site.
The Clarinet Institute
Based in Los Angeles, the Clarinet Institute features out-of-print and donated classical sheet music as well as a catalogue of their own arrangements.
Sorted by category for solo clarinet, duets, quartets, quintets, woodwind ensembles and clarinet/piano.
Many of the free charts are no longer covered by copyrights. Those that are covered by copyright are ok to download, play and perform, but you can’t sell or otherwise distribute the music.
Petrucci Music Library
This site is a little harder to navigate, but offers lots of clarinet sheet music that’s in the public domain (free).
Note the link above is to ‘scores featuring the clarinet’, and as such includes music for much larger groups. You might have to do a little digging.
Additional Sources of Free Clarinet Sheet Music
There are other sites that provide some music free, and feature inexpensive downloads. For example 8 Notes, where you can view music and download with a $20 per year subscription.
The Mutopia Project has some free sheet music available, although the selection of clarinet music is somewhat limited.
