Personal Note from Leslie :

This site is my personal site but also the home of Ridenour Clarinet Products UK. I hope you enjoy the site and thanks for visiting

A recent development is that RCP UK can now process card payments for (credit and debit cards) goods purchased on this site including large purchases such as clarinets etc. Card payments will be subject to a 2.5% surcharge. Currently these transactions need to be done by phone or by email but card payments will be accepted – see latest post regarding this. As soon as possible it is hoped that the Payzone system for card transactions will be integrated fully into this site but until then please contact Leslie direct if you wish to purchase an instrument or products by direct card payment (Please note  this is not PayPal. Customers will still be able to purchase any items in the store by PayPal until full integration into Payzone is achieved)

I hope you find the site easy to navigate – so please enjoy  the site, the shop , do explore  the RCP products for whom I am the sole agent (in UK and for Europe) and my own personal products (Leslie ‘s products) – CDs and my self help teaching  book (PDF) book etc  and make use of all the free resources available:

Educational resources – there is advice for embouchure correction and posture correction – as well as how to get into the orchestral music profession plus extracts from my teaching book – all in Resources and Articles. I hope you can extract a lot of knowledge and information – do contact me if you wish to ask relevant questions about any aspect of the site or a clarinet related  question or have a lesson (either at home in my studio or on e-staccato)  If you want some free advice – I always reply personally there are no salespeople or assistants – you get my direct help. Thanks for visiting  – do visit again.
