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...

There are some sample videos that I invite you to watch, which can help you improve your high notes right away.

You'll get instant access to a couple of my favourite trainings to improve clarinet high notes, as well as access to a video where I answered over 100 questions about clarinet high notes. (I bet some of them are similar to ones that you may have!) My hope is that you learn something that...

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...

Time to improve your clarinet high notes - now with special training for the next 5 months Sent Thursday, December 15, 2016 View as plaintext

Hi
 
I am excited to be reopening registration to my most popular clarinet course ever, Mastering Clarinet High Notes. Participants who registered in July have reported some amazing improvement in the tone, flexibility, tuning and "comfort" of their high clarinet notes. I would like you to benefit from this same amazing training.
 
In a few days I'll send out the registration link. Meanwhile, you can watch some preview videos right now to improve your high notes right away. Simply go to: www.masteringclarinethighnotes.com and sign up for a set of videos in a mini high notes course as my gift to you. If you saw these in summer, it is a great time to review them. 
 
I will also be doing some live sessions later in the week to answer questions from the Clarinet Mentors community. Stay tuned for details!...

Expires tomorrow: Amazing live training option - look here Sent Friday, October 14, 2016 View as plaintext

Hi
 
I wanted to make sure that you had the opportunity to look at the three new videos I have that are designed to help you play clarinet more easily here: https://members.clarinetmastery.com/p/better-clarinet-articulation-video-three#
 
I want you to be able to enjoy your clarinet more, and not be frustrated by some of the common bad habits that we fall into without realizing it. In fact, most people don't even know that they are not articulating properly, and may not even know what "articulation" is on the clarinet! If you haven't explored this, you may be missing something that will make your playing better, and will help you to feel more comfortable when you play. If you find that it is difficult to tongue fast enough, or that your high notes don't sound good when you tongue, or you are wondering what I mean by these words,...

First come, first serve, 10 spots open for one-on-one clarinet lessons Sent Tuesday, August 9, 2016

Hi! I hope you are enjoying your clarinet these days. I rarely have time for one-on-one clarinet lessons, but I have put aside two days in August to meet some of you "live" (via computer) for a one-on-one lesson. You need a computer or phone or tablet with a video camera, microphone and a reasonably fast internet connection to have a clarinet lesson with me. They are really fun, and I promise to do by best to help you with your biggest clarinet concerns. I will also provide you with a video replay of your lesson so that you can review as many times as you wish. If you'd like to sign up, please go to this webpage: http://www.greatclarinettone.com/onlinelessons I'm creating this letter while I am on holidays, so it is not the most elegant webpage! However, there is a drop down menu for August 19th and August 30th to choose some lesson times. (You need to select your time and then click...

Important - did you see this? Sent Friday, July 15, 2016 View as plaintext

Hi
 
I want to make sure you don't miss out on this if you've been busy lately. I really appreciate you for being a part of the Clarinet Mentors community. My hope is that you are making great music on your clarinet, and really improving your skills in a way that avoids frustrations and discouragement. All of my free training supports my mission of creating a world full of happier clarinetists! Hopefully you saw the free videos that have been available on improving high notes this week.
 
I want to send you a special invitation to join me for some deeper training that I truly believe will speed up your clarinet playing progress. This invitation is for you if you find that higher notes are more difficult to play than lower notes. It may be that they squeak, don't respond, they are hard to play at softer dynamics, the fingering slows you down, or they "jump"...

1-week only: Access now Michelle's best clarinet training as a gift to you Sent Thursday, July 7, 2016 View as plaintext

Hi ,
 
I notice that you haven't checked out my latest free training videos which are aimed at helping you to play clarinet high notes with much better tone, control at softer dynamics, and to save lots of frustrations by trying to figure out how to fix common clarinet challenges. These are available for free for the next week in celebration of my new high notes course being released next week.
 
I think this is the most valuable training I have ever offered at no charge to the Clarinet Mentors community. I know that some of you tried to sign up when I first mentioned it, and there were some technical difficulties on the website. That has been corrected now, and you can access all three of these videos.

New access information for your Clarinet High Notes Course Sent Saturday, July 2, 2016

Hello ! Yesterday I sent you the Clarinet Mentors newsletter with information on how you can sign up for a free 3 part course designed to help you play clarinet high notes more easily. There is also a chance for you to win some great prizes if you help me by telling me what your biggest clarinet challenges are by July 3. Apparently I play my clarinet much better than my computer! There were some technical difficulties with the sign up page, which I believe are now corrected. Please try again if you tried yesterday (or sign up now, if you haven't): www.masteringclarinethighnotes.com If you register there, you'll get an email from me with the proper link to the video. I haven't figured out how to have the video magically appear, but the email links do work! I believe that there are many great pointers in the video series, so I hope that you will join me. Thanks! Michelle
