Well, clearly there are excellent klezmer players who did not
grow up with it, so it is an outrageously exaggerated statement.
But the ethnic characteristic of the music is helped if you do
grow up with it. It also helps to have an ugly sound on the
clarinet as most of the klezmer players I remember from the 1930s
and 40s had.

That's at least a little more helpful than an exchange from
alt.music.clarinet this week:

Query: "I want to learn to play klezmer."
Response: "One does not learn to play klezmer. One must grow up
with it."
