 Re: clarinet vs sax embouchure

I started clarinet soon after beginning saxophone, so it can certainly be done. The difference in embouchure shouldn’t be a problem. The problem is that saxophone fingerings are A LOT easier, and if you end up playing saxophone more than clarinet, you may never learn to “think clarinet”. Clarinet sort of contains everything necessary for saxophone, but the reverse is not true.

If you play clarinet for a couple years, picking up saxophone will be super easy. On the other hand, if you neglect working on the more difficult aspects of clarinet, either because of limited time, or whatever, it will take you a lot longer to learn clarinet. So, do it, but be aware that it may make things harder in the long run.
