Hello to all clarinetists in the Clarinet Mentors Community! I enjoy sharing new clarinet pointers and tips with you, and this newsletter has a video that was really helpful to me. I hope you enjoy it the special content below.

I am currently visiting some family members in the US midwest,...

Last Call! (Clarinet bonus training disappears in a few hours) Sent Monday, September 4, 2017 View as plaintext

Hi
Many people have registered for the Mastering Clarinet Music Club and the Clarinet Mastery Live Trainings since they started in January. The progress that they have made is amazing. You can have the same progress. What do they have in common with you?
  • They love playing clarinet, and want to get better
  • They have things that frustrate them and they don't know the best way to fix them (such as high notes don't respond well, a section of music is just too hard for the fingers to play smoothly, rhythms that don't make sense)
  • They improve in anything in life when there is a structure set up to help them improve on a regular basis (How about having a twice-monthly opportunity to check in live, online, with me, to ask me any of your clarinet challenges and get personal feedback from me?)
It is Labour Day here in Canada, where we honour...

New School Year - New Approach To Your Clarinet? (even if you are no longer in school...) Sent Saturday, September 2, 2017 View as plaintext

Hi
Learning is always a priority of mine, and I make it a point to study new things every week. School starts  here next week, and it always make me think about the new things that I would like to learn. How about you? I'm still learning new skills on my clarinet, and new ways to teach those skills. I would like you to always be able to share in my newest teachings and learnings on the clarinet, which I believe help all of us to play better, and learn much more quickly.
Would you benefit from:
  • Two live sessions a month where you can ask me any clarinet question you like? Seriously - If you are having trouble with anything, I'll do my best to help you find a solution.
  • Joining an active community of mature amateur adults that love playing clarinet and supporting each other, sharing knowledge...

Watch this clarinet training that I recorded for you a few days ago Sent Wednesday, August 30, 2017 View as plaintext

Hi
You may have seen the note that I sent about a Clarinet Mentors Live Online Training last Saturday. We had about 70 people from all over the world in this very interactive session. I know that many of you could not log in live, but are interested in these lessons. You can watch the entire replay here.
I presented some of my latest ideas on how to learn more effectively as a clarinetist, and provided an outline that you can use to plan your practise sessions in a way that speeds up your progress. You'll see a full list of the questions and topics that we covered under the video.
Some of these topics include:
Mouthpieces, Hand position for better technic, Blowing, How much mouthpiece should I use, and how does that affect tonguing? What are some good intermediate musical resources? What type of metronome should...
