How Does the Clarinet Produce Sound?

Answer

The clarinet produces sound when the air entering it causes the reed to vibrate and create sound waves. The keys are pressed down to produce different tones and the different notes are produced based on how far the vibration has to travel.

The clarinet produces sound when the reed vibrates. The player must hold the clarinet in his or her mouth using proper embouchure, or mouth position, and blow air into the instrument. The air causes the reed to vibrate, which produces the sound. You can find more information here: www.infoplease.com
From my experience, a clarinet produces sound with air and reed. The reed needs to be moist and you gently blow air into the clarinet. As the air goes through the reed, sound is produced and you are able to use the keys to change the notes.
When you blow into a clarinet mouth piece, it vibrates the wooden reed. You use the keys that are on it to make your notes. Then the sound is amplified through the larger hole at the end.
