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...

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...

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.
