Subj: Re: [kl] Artie Shaw's clarinet inspires teenager

Watching some of Julian Bliss' videos had me working on my embouchure.
I think his looks awfully good.
Frost's was good too.
I've been pursing my lips more lately. I wonder if people who get
properly angry have better clarinet embouchures. (weak logical
connection, but if the right facial expression is matched to support
good embouchure (e.g. anger expression involving the right lip pursing
would strengthen embouchure muscles). There was this piccolo player
(finicky sort) who had the tiniest button mouth; her relaxed
expression looked almost pursed. I hardly imagine that being as
important for flute as clarinet (pressure on the reed vs. airspeed and
direction). Though I imagine her doing embouchure exercises nightly.
(Very finicky sort; got top scores in my human anatomy course,she'd
complain dreadfully about scores, studying and everything she had to
do. and was working towards becoming a physical therapist).

Advertising for what? ... or whom? The kid? I say go for it!
Such advertising appeals to me more than the 30 second runs on network TV.

(another cheap advertising opportunity for a company with a huge market share)
