The side of her thumb touches the thumb rest. Fleshy part of thumb touches the clarinet.
The thumb rest should NOT balance on top of the thumb.
If this doesn't help, maybe she will grow into it...if her sound is great maybe have her play Eb clarinet...?
: We have a beginning band clarinet player with
: very small hands. She barely covers the
: holes and can not reach most pinky keys.
: Any ideas on how to help?
