 Frustrated while practicing because of reeds
Author: GenEric

I find practicing really frustrating for clarinet. As a child, practicing for piano was a no-fuss pleasure because there were no variables I needed to worry about that would hinder my performance. However, while practicing the clarinet, I find that there are too many elements that would make practicing much more unpleasant. Reeds, especially during the winter time, can really change how your clarinet plays. Also, with a wooden instrument, can shrink. It really makes practice infuriating because it feels you're becoming worse. Especially during a time like November where things like all-state recordings are due, this can be very stressful.

How do you overcome this problem as a reed player? I'm considering switching to plastic reeds after all my auditions are done.
