First you need to be a good breather. You will need to take some breathing lessons. Second, See if the clarinet is for you, sometime the mouth piece is not for you. Go to the library and get a music book that you can learn from.

It would be advisable to perhaps go to a local music store and peruse various books on the subject, as many specialized stores have instructional booklets. Another idea would be to search the internet for free videos of people playing or giving instruction, and playing close attention. Practice daily!

Depending on where you live, the local music store should have self help books for every instrument imaginable. You may also browse the internet for help if there is not one near you; the phone book is also a good tool to use.
