 Re: clarinet vs sax embouchure

I started out playing the clarinet in the 4th grade and then the sax in the 5th grade. It came to me fairly easy. Fingerings are closely the same, with a few minor differences. As far as the embouchure goes it is easier to go from the clarinet to the saxes. The clarinet requires a more firm embouchure. If you have too tight of an embouchure on the saxes and even sax player do, the lower registers are harder to get out, such as low C. So a more relaxed embouchure is needed.

I don't see any reason why you can't play both now. When getting a horn make sure it is a decent horn and the pads seal well. This alone can cause the lower register notes to not speak.

Go for it.
