Clarinet bonus expires tonight! Sent Thursday, December 31, 2015

Hello and Happy New Year! I'm enjoying a great family gathering in the cold winter woods of Minnesota. I hope that you are enjoying some good family and friends time as well. Just a quick note to remind you that if you haven't already signed up for my new course, Better Clarinet Tone, there are some great bonuses available until midnight tonight. Everyone who enrolls will have access to an online clarinet masterclass with me where I will answer all clarinet questions that you may have, and a few people will have a mini online lesson with me. In addition to that, I will randomly choose three people to have a private clarinet lesson with me (either in-studio, or online via a Skype-type service). I'd love to meet you on one of my online events! As with all of my courses, there is a full 30-Day Money Back guarantee, so you can really try it out before you decide it if is valuable to you. I invite you to try it out. You can...

Happy Holidays from Michelle at Clarinet Mentors! Sent Thursday, December 24, 2015

I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas (or whatever tradition you celebrate). I am lucky to be connected with so many amazing clarinetists throughout the world. Just a quick note for you - I have some special videos online right now (not through YouTube) that are designed to help you play with better clarinet tone. We all want to sound better on our favorite instrument! You can find them at: http://www.greatclarinettone.com/previewthree You will see a link there to 3 videos from my new course, Better Clarinet Tone. If you haven't seen the other two, I recommend that you watch all three in order. With just those three videos, you can make a clear improvement in your tone (and be less frustrated) in the next few weeks. For those of you that want to try the new course, and have a detailed 30-Day plan for improving tone, there is a link to order it after you have been on that video page for 5...

Hello to all members of the Clarinet Mentors community! I am sending a quick note to let you know of an opportunity that I think you will appreciate. Backun Musical Services just started their annual 12 days of Backun promotion on Facebook. The grand prize is a top-of-the-line MoBa clarinet, played by Ricardo Morales, with a Silverstein ligature valued at well over $11,000.
