Reddit | Clarinet by /u/ethanwayne7 - 18h ago

In one week I have to turn in an audition (just a recording so I can play multiple times until I think I have it) for band placement at my high school. Do you have any tips for what my teacher may be looking for and what I can do to get into the top band? Anything helps

Hello all, I am a mostly self-taught clarinet player, so I don't really have the benefit of asking teachers or peers when I have a 'dumb' question like this. So please forgive me.

I usually use a Vandoren 3.5 reed, but when I want a softer sound and most of the piece is lower than a clarion G or so, I will prefer to use a 3. I just find it easier to produce a more delicate tone. When I play on a 3.5 or a 4, my tone gets quite airy/fuzzy if I'm playing softly in the chalumeau register. On the other hand, if most of the piece is high clarion or altissimo, I'll use a 4.

Does this mean that I'm compensating for embouchure/wind mistakes? Should I be sticking to the same reed?

I know, I know, I should try mouthpieces because my embouchure and all that, but I'm looking for volume, and tone,I'd accept barrel suggestions if that helps, I play in this radical marching band in Pittsburgh and I want to be heard playing with brass instruments, also, i love that good old New Orleans sound. Thanks

So I'm trying to get into making covers of various pieces of music where I would record one voice at a time and then stitch them together on my computer.

My first question is what is a good microphone to use for my clarinet, bass clarinet, and maybe my soprano sax? Should it be one of those clip-on mics, or one of those mics that sits on your desk?

Second question, what audio recording and editing software do you recommend? I'm a total noob when it comes to editing-software.

Thank you in advance.

Hello there! I've been checking in every so often on my journey with this instrument and I'm starting to explore classical music as a reward for putting in practice time. I think I have the flute from Morning Mood / Peer Gynt pegged.

The swelling in my left index finger has finally gone away and it's back to a normal size. For a month there it was like having a walnut on my knuckle.

I continue to experiment with tongue, throat, and reed placement and I'm starting to get in the groove more easily where I find a nice and open sound. It only takes 20 minutes now instead of 2 hours :) Still noobing it, still loving it, and still keeping it an arms reach away, assembled and ready to play, and playing it every chance I get.

What I've learned in the last month are a few more scales, LOTS of scale runs to metronome and getting pretty fast :) And I'm exploring dynamics more, playing as softly as I can, or as loudly as I can, and all points in between. I find playing loudly, and with more air support, keeps my reed dry longer, which is a plus as I can practice longer between swabbing.

Thank you all again for all of your help, especially Dr Farren.

I’ve been renting an E11 from there for over a year and want to buy either it or an R13 with the equity, but the people at the store I was at said we couldn’t or something. Have any of you?

I'm about to finish my third year playing clarinet at school and I want to upgrade the sound of my clarinet. I currently play a Yamaha B flat student clarinet.

I lost my swab the other day and I ordered one as soon as possible. It's on its way but for the time being, I need a new way to clean my instrument. Any suggestions? Thanks

I know it varies through tastes, but I want some 3rd party opinions. I am trying out for a youth symphony (for those in Michigan it's the grand rapids youth symphony) and I have to pick between two solos. The solos are Adagio-Tarantella by Ernesto Cavallini, and Solo de Concours by A. Messager. I need to refine both quite a bit, and tryouts are in about a month and a half. Private lessons are not an option, but I am willing to play my instrument for 5+ hours a day, so which one would get me in?
