This may sound a very silly question, but.....

You say that if you play the clarinet for a couple of minutes standing, you get dizzy. What happens if you stand doing nothing at all for a couple of minutes? It's not unusual for people to feel faint under those conditions. You may need to move around a bit - sway in time to the music or whatever - to stop yourself feeling faint.

Flute players tend to wave their instruments around more than clarinet players do - maybe this is why you didn't have this problem when you played the flute.


Having said all that, I don't see there's any real problem if you can only play sitting down. Cellists and pianists always sit. Alan Hacker is one of England's leading clarinet players and he always sits - being confined to a wheelchair he has little option.


If there are so many people on this board unwilling or unable to have a civil and balanced discussion about important issues, then I shan't bother to post here any more.

To the great relief of many of you, no doubt.
