Subj: [kl] Mozart Reeds

I just got my first box of Mozart Reeds and I actually got all 10 in the
box to play. One of them was too soft, so I gave it to one of my
students. I ordered them from Phil Shapiro in Miami, toll free phone:
866-292-5037. Phil is the principal clarinetist in the Miami Symphony
and he hand makes all of the reeds from this wonderful cane that he gets
from South America. These reeds vibrate very well. I have felt that
Vandorens don't seem to want to vibrate consistently. ANNIE

P.S. PINKIE POWER: Perrier Exercises, P 1
I had been disappointed in my pinkies lately and got out my Perrier
Book. I couldn't believe how well these finger exercises were written. I
had been having some of my students play some of the exercises without
having seen the book in years, not for memory, but out of logic. You
would have to be familiar with them to know what I'm talking about.
Klose has some "Pinkie" exercises, not at the beginning, but towards the
middle of the book, and they aren't nearly as good. They start out too
hard for most students to really solve their pinkie coordination, and I
was never completely wild about them, myself. What I like about the
Perrier is that you start out with your 6 fingers down, and hopefully,
relaxed. Then all you have to do is various repititions of your left and
right pinkies in various combinations. Nice and simple.
