When first I became aware of this, the concept didn't come from a clarinet
teacher but from one of my son's early trumpet teachers. I used to sit in
the lesson studio during many of his lessons (until he could drive himself).
For some reason it never came up in all my studies with some very good
clarinet teachers.
