Clarinet - Upside down note?
Hello, I have a clarinet. I am familiar with almost every note. When I was playing music, I came across a note upside down. How do I play upside down notes? Are there any keys I need to hold down or something? I have a Bb Clarinet.

Notes upside down mean nothing. Play them as you would a regular note. The stem is just upside down depending on where the note is located on the staff. Notes on the B line and up have the stems facing downward. Below the B line, the note stems face upward.
I play clarinet too, but the note placement is the same for any other instrument.
