 clarinet vs sax embouchure
Author: LC007

I am thinking about getting an Alto sax eventually. So I would like to ask all you doublers about the embouchure. I am a beginner on the clarinet and progressing nicely. My first instinct is to wait a good year or 2 and develop a more or less solid grasp of the clarinet before moving on to sax. But the little kid in me says "no no get the sax now !! [rotate] "

So my question is - is the embouchure sufficiently different from the clarinet so as to let one practice both everyday? Or put another way: if I practice 90 minutes on clarinet (which is pretty much my limit) will I have any chops left for sax? I would not want to buy a sax and then discover it is "ruining" my clarinet progress.

Thanks to all that reply.

Luc
