 Re: "Desert period" for an avid clarinetist

If you want to improve your sound, you are much more likely to improve practicing every day than fussing with reeds. You have to teach your air, your embouchure, your oral cavity how to "do it right." If you aren't practicing every single day, you are not being serious enough. Listen to clarinetists with fine tones on cds (some of my personal favorite sounds come from Wright, Marcellus, Leister, Manasse, McLean, Ettlinger, Hara, etc. but this is personal). Get the sound you want in your head before you play a note. Try getting the Baermann Scale Book and add a half an hour to an hour of practice on it on the days you were taking off. Good sound begins with a concept in your mind and comes out through hard work. I guarantee you that if you put more practice time, your reed issues will diminish.
