Is the flute harder or the clarinet?
The flute is waay harder! You have to use your mouth and how you blow airr into instrument! For clarinet, all you have to do is press one extra key and boom you are playing upper register!
I am not a specialist at instruments but I learn the clarinet. Flute is a much harder instrument as you have to learn how to blow in to it properly and fingering notes is harder to do on the side. But it does make a lovely harmonizing sound. Clarinet is easier and by learning the clarinet you can easily go on to the saxophone because everything is the same just the shape and less keys…
Arguable but I say clarinet is harder to start on because of the way you have to blow - but once you can blow they are more or less equal apart from the clarinet difficulty in the octave key. Most octave keys take you up an octave as the name suggests but o the clarinet it TAKES YOU UP A 12TH!! Annoying and difficult. I say Clarinet!
