Subj: [kl] Playing scales three octaves up
Date: Sat, 30 Oct 2004 20:06:43 -0400

My daughter is in her four year of band now. Her
skills with the clarinet have become quiet impressive
for one that is just fourteen.  She is currently
working on a grade four solo piece that she will be
playing in the spring for competition. 

One of the things I have heard her talking about that
has her stressing out is that it seems they have to
try out for seat positions on both the concert and
symphonic band at school.  They are just finishing up
marching band and they won A superiors all across the
board.  The thing is, she seems to be stressing
because evidently they have to be able to play three
octaves up on some particular scales that the
instructor has told them they'd have to be able to do
to place in a chair position.

Does anyone have any advice or comments on this three
octaves up thing?
