Our band director has just presented us with a piece that requires of me rapid sixteenth notes of B flat and B natural followed by C back and forth several times. My fingers don't seem to work so quickly. Can anyone offer advice ? I really need it.

Play the Bb (A key + register) and experiment with the top two side trill keys.

oohhhh fun, if i were flute i could manage that, but the equivlent would be c, d and d flat
but that seems to require alot of pinky finger excercise, try practicing doing it slowly and building up the speed till you can do it fo about 4 or 5 bars (or a bar more then you need) at full speed. and find the most comfitable key combination for you rather then leaving the work to one pinky finger (i find c on the top joint and b on the bottom easiest)

practice and experiment with those side trill keys

or alternate fingerings

check the above website for the trill fingerings too as depending upon how fast the tempo is those may work well too.

a full boehm clarinet would make it simple too =-)
