Clarinet Live Session Replay - Great clarinet discussion for you to enjoy

Sent Thursday, May 4, 2017


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:

Dec 2016 - Amazing Clarinet Live Trainings now available to watch

Amazing Clarinet Live Trainings now available to watch!

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 played!) I want you to learn from these...

Hi
 
We had an amazing, online Clarinet Mentors masterclass today with over 85 clarinetists from at least 15 countries. I lost count, but it was truly an amazing experience. We had many questions that I answered, which you can view on this video. There were also many questions that flew by that people answered for each other. Some of the ideas that were shared were very helpful! Thanks so much to all of you who attended live and in-person.
 
I realize that many of you were busy, and unable to attend live. I would love for you to be able to watch and enjoy everything that we did. We covered so many topics - reeds, mouthpieces, tonguing high notes, finger positions, finger technic, tone, altissimo notes, ligatures, fingering charts, barrels (and I'm sure I'm forgetting some things!). We also had some live mini lessons to try and help clarinetists who were brave enough to play in front...
