  • Something doesn't sound right to me. Does your music look like this? Are you looking at the non transposed piano music in Eb (with three flats) or the transposed part for clarinet in F (one flat)? It should be in F if you're playing a Bb clarinet.

    Four lines down should be a low E, which is as far down as a Bb clarinet goes unless you push the bell against your leg or something, at least from what I recall.

    You finger them just like those same notes two octaves higher, except you don't press the octave key. So the D is three fingers down on each hand, and the Eb is the same with the Eb key played with the little finger.
