Annie,

Of course you have to have that last bit......
"Blow through your clarinet...not into it....and play to the 'cheap seats'
in the balcony. Those people love music, that's why they are there."

This statement I remember well. I was the member of a very poor family as I
grew-up. It always appealed to me to be playing to the 'cheap seats', the
only ones we could afford. Seems that I've adopted the advise....the hall
that the Dallas Opera plays has 3600 seats. haha
