Clarinet Live Session Replay - Great clarinet discussion for you to enjoy Sent Thursday, May 4, 2017 View as plaintext

Hello!
 
Last week, I invited everyone in the Clarinet Mentors Community to attend a live online training session with me. We had a great time!
 
I promised to send out a video replay since many people were unable to attend in person.  I presented a mini lesson on how I approach learning a new piece of music, and then we had a great Question and Answer session. Just take a look at the list of questions below!
 
You can watch the whole video, or just the parts that interest you:
This session started with Michelle teaching some technics for learning new music. You can download the sheet music here: http://www.clarinetmentors.com/resources/MozartClarinetDuetAndanteGrazioso.pdf

Hi Everyone,
 
It looks like in my excitement to share the video of Sean Perrin and I answering clarinet questions, I forgot to put in a link! You can watch the video here: https://youtu.be/VPjd8nYFxJY
 
You will find a list of all of the topics in the description of the video. It includes discussions of how to play more musically, how to choose a barrel, how to tune the clarinet, how to tell if your instrument is in good shape, how to oil keys and lots more.
 
Sorry for not including the link. I hope you enjoy it!

Hi
 
Would you like to improve your clarinet playing, be incredibly inspired musically, and personally meet (and hear in performance) some of the world's greatest clarinetists? 
 
I am so excited about the Clarinet Mentors Live Event at the Backun International Clarinet Festival on Mar. 9-11th in Nashville, TN. During this 3 day event, we have an amazing line-up of concerts, masterclasses, ensembles, gear testing and more clarinet fun for clarinetists just like you. I just found out that some of the world's greatest clarinetists are taking some time out during the event to work exclusively in special masterclass sessions and fireside chats with the Clarinet Mentors community, the passionate amateur adult like yourself. This includes Ricardo Morales, Corrado Giufreddi, David Shifrin (one of my childhood "Clarinet Heroes")...

Amazing Clarinet Live Trainings now available to watch (and special offer that expires Dec. 23rd) Sent Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Hello Everyone! We had two amazing Clarinet Mentors live online training events yesterday, with over 60 clarinetists from more than 10 countries all together in our online community. It was awesome! I know that some of you could not attend live, but are interested in learning from our session together. We had about 5 clarinetists volunteering for a mini lesson in each session. We can learn so much from other players. You will likely relate to some of the challenges that they experience, and learn from them. One of my best teachers, Bil Jackson, used to encourage his students to make deals to sit in on each others' lessons to observe, and learn. I remember doing this a bit with my clarinetist friend Rob, who now plays in the Cleveland Orchestra. (He's a fabulously talented player, who works hard, and he got to watch lots of bad habits being fixed when I...
