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:

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...

Surprise - 2 Live Clarinet Trainings for you tomorrow! Sent Monday, December 19, 2016 View as plaintext

Hello!
 
It's time to have your clarinet questions answered, or even for you to have a mini clarinet lesson with me. I love interacting with members of the Clarinet Mentors community, and I am hosting two spontaneous live online sessions tomorrow. 
 
Please join me tomorrow (Dec. 20) either at noon PST or 5:00 PDT. By offering two sessions, I increase the odds of finding a time that works for the many timezones in the world where clarinetists from the Clarinet Mentors community live. My intent is to make this fairly informal, and answer your questions. I am particularly interested to know what is frustrating you that I can try to help with. If you are willing to play your clarinet, I can give you some direct feedback. I'll have room for about 5 volunteers per session, so send me an email if you would like have a mini-lesson during our...
