How it Works Classical Fingers is made of strong durable ABS complementing the design and structure of the clarinet. By simply attaching two specifically designed magnetic bands to the lower Barrel Joint (bands fit all Barrel sizes) and Middle Joint, Classical Fingers clips into perfect position using strong rare earth magnets, providing both support and stability for the guard. In return, Classical Fingers covers all of the essential keys and holes on the clarinet, whilst maintaining an optimum height in which the fingers can move smoothly whilst playing. When you have finished using Classical Fingers simply leave the magnetic bands on the clarinet when you pack it away and attach the guard to your music stand via the magnets. In transit, keep it in the microfiber bag supplied or store it in the box it comes with for protection.

Overview Learning Tools Reviews KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS  1. Classical Fingers improves playing by up to 50% - Classical Fingers has been specifically engineered with the student in mind to ensure the fingers remain at an optimum height at all times, focussing in particular on the little fingers, squeaks, uneven placement of fingers, the transition between A-B (register transition) and the height at which the fingers need to be for playing quicker.   2. Classical Fingers helps create the perfect technique and correct muscle memory essential for playing the clarinet. Muscle memory of the hands and fingers begins as soon as a student starts learning the clarinet. If this is not correct from day one, even transitions between simple clarinet notes become problematic, causing squeaks and muffled notes. These bad habits are very time consuming and almost impossible to reverse later on (even after only 6 months!).    3. If the fingers are too high they will come down unevenly, too fast and heavy onto the clarinet keys. Not only does this create inaccurate placement of fingers causing “blurpy” sounds, the breath/tonguing will imitate this awkward technique and the student will not play or sound smooth regarding dynamics and intonation.   4. If the fingers are closer to the clarinet keys the fingers are more likely to go to the correct position (like touch typing). This will also help with note recognition.   5. The wrong technique can cause undue tension and stress on the fingers and hands making it difficult and uncomfortable to play over long periods of time. This can also lead to long term hand related problems.  6. It is essential for beginners to learn how to hold and balance the clarinet correctly in their first 6 months - 1 year. Classical Fingers helps the fingers to stay closer to the surface of the clarinet, in return, helping the hands to stay in a more balanced position on either side of the clarinet so the student can hold it correctly.  7. Classical Fingers is not only essential for beginners but is great for ALL levels of players and clarinet music. Whether preparing for a recital or an examination, Classical Fingers eliminates any unnecessary finger movement ensuring a better performance and improved results.
REVIEWS “Classical Fingers works - and works brilliantly! Beginners will accelerate their learning, seasoned players can check their finger technique and teachers will have comfort in knowing that their student’s hands are in good hands. An ingenious, beautifully made and presented world class musical instrument accessory. An excellent product all round - every clarinet player should "get their hands on one." - David Temby (Performer, Educator and Creator of the  Temby® Instrument range) - Australia “Classical Fingers has arrived! I have tried it and found it to be awesome. You have created something that solves the age old problem for clarinetists worldwide, the problem with 'high fingers'. I believe its hard for beginners to be able to focus on the pitch, embouchure etc and also to focus on the fingers to stay low. Now Sean can just focus on his playing/learning the clarinet and let the Classical Fingers to it’s job. Gone are the 'high and wild fingers'. I think its not only for beginners, it’s for whoever feels that he/she has the fingers problem, like I (still) do. Thank You Phil Lambert.” - Bambang Witono and Sean Nicholas (Father of Student) - Jakarta, Indonesia “I am a huge fan of Classical Fingers. I play Buffet R-13. I played clarinet in a community band a few days ago and it was the 'public debut' in Japan of Classical Fingers. There was a young girl (about 10 years old) playing her clarinet next to me and I saw she was struggling with fingers. I let her play the instrument with classical fingers and I saw her fingering started to improve in ten minutes. She started to play the music much smoother!! Phil Lambert, this is a great invention indeed!!” - Katsuhiko Arai (Former Member of the Texas Community College All-State Symphonic Band) - Japan “Many times in my teaching I have wished for something like this for students whose fingers fly up too high, compromising their smooth technique! I get students to imagine a bed of sharp nails sitting just above their fingers, with a corresponding ‘Ouch' every time a finger flies up high!...I congratulate you for the design awards you have won with it - fantastic!” - Kate Stockwin (Performer, Educator and Examiner) - Australia “Congratulations on your most ingenious design – I love the elegant look of it because as you say the clarinet is such an elegant suave beast it would be such a shame to lose the aesthetics of it.” - Mark Walton (Performer, Educator and Composer) - New Zealand/Australia “Classical Fingers is great value for money! I was amazed at the quality and design of the product and how quickly it helped my students’ fingers to stay in the correct position. For a fraction of the cost of lessons it is a fantastic one-off investment when learning the clarinet....I highly recommend it for all students.” - Peter Thornbury (Teacher) - USA “It looks stunning! (My Mom who studied visual arts in France and has a degree in it said, "Awwwh.... this looks so beautiful!")......it works like how it's described: it's fantastic. My teacher said before I got the product "You have perfect hand positioning and I have nothing to say about it." I was skeptical using this thinking "There's no way it'll help me" but here it is and already my hand positioning is going far beyond.” - Edward Yeo (Advanced Student) - USA “It’s remarkable how quickly it has worked on his fingers.” - Jules Paxton (Father of Student) - Australia “The classical fingers was received in well condition...thank you so much for designing this wonderful product.” - Richard Fong (Performer and Educator) - Hong Kong “I would like to congratulate you for Classical Fingers, it is very impressive.” - Cristo Barrios (Performer and Educator) - Spain “You can really feel the pressure to keep your fingers down...it works really well for this piece (Cavallini - Grade V AMEB).” - Anna Solovjev (Adult Student) - Australia “It is magic. I could feel the difference in my playing after several minutes crossing "the break” and it would certainly help reduce the RSI I have in my right hand. When I happened upon your vimeo clip the other night I knew I had to have one even before your clip had finished. So once again thank you.” - Kim Olsen (Student) - Australia
Overview Learning Tools Reviews
LEARNING TOOLS • When using Classical Fingers try to test yourself by not touching the guard. Try simple scales at first and then move onto some of your pieces (this is the real test to see how high your fingers have been incorrectly positioned) • Try to keep your R.H and L.H little fingers close to the silver keys at all times. This will help you remember where the keys are in relation to the notes you are playing and also reduce the “Blurpy” sound during your finger transitions • If you find your fingers are coming off the clarinet unevenly (causing a “blurpy” sound when you slur) you can use Classical Fingers to improve this. Simply try to tap the guard with your fingers at the same time whilst playing between notes - this will ensure your fingers will come off the keys at the same time e.g. play a low C and then flick your 2nd and 3rd fingers off so they tap the guard whilst slurring to your E. You will feel and hear the immediate results • For more advanced players, try playing your high altissimo notes and notice how your L.H Index finger remains lower with Classical Fingers on. Then try playing chromatically from high C# - high G and you will be amazed at the smoothness • Once you have used Classical Fingers for at least 10 minutes, clip it to your music stand and try playing without it. You will immediately feel and hear the improvement in your playing • Always keep Classical Fingers close by so you can quickly check if your fingers are remaining in the correct position. The more you use it the better you will play! • Always use Classical Fingers before a recital or exam. This will ensure that you will give your best performance
