Biography

Joel Hands-Otte's (Clarinet) love for music began with the piano at the
age of four, slowly encompassing many woodwind instruments such as
clarinet, saxophone, flute and oboe by high school. While completing his
undergraduate degree on the clarinet, Joel fell in love with the bass
clarinet. An instrument for all styles and a musician with a love for all
genres - it was a perfect match. By the end of his bachelor degree, Joel
decided he would undertake Honor’s on the bass clarinet.

Joel researched extensively, contacting many composers to uncover a
vast range of repertoire specifically written for the bass clarinet. In his
quest, Joel found many wonderful gems such as Classically-inspired
pieces, Latin, Jazz, Funk and Contemporary works from around the
world. Joel has also obtained a number of compositions from Australian
composers and even had works commissioned for him.

Joel has been an active member of many different and diverse
ensembles at Monash, performing as Principal Bass Clarinetist in the
Monash Wind Symphony and Monash Academy Orchestra. He has also
been an integral part of the Monash Art Ensemble, specialising in
contemporary music from Australian composers.
