My favorite accessory in the clarinet world is a mirror on your music stand. All of the comments listed above can be solved by using a mirror at the side of your music stand. At the age of 61 people say I have a great sound fast finger and more. Still have a mirror. :) I was lucky to have studied with the best, but it was looking at the mirror when screwing up or doing something great that helped me become the player I am.

So why did I squeak crossing the break? I look at the mirror and my right ring finger wasn't covering the hole. Just an example. hahaha, before you spend $10,000 on a horn or $1300 on a ligature, spend $5 on a mirror.
