 Re: Stop clarinet from "squaking"

Hmm I think you guys might be correct about the pinching reed. After some close observation, I realized that I am tightening my embouchure for a split second to allow the note to pop out. I really liked the style and sound a senior in my section produced so I tried to imitate that. Seems like pinching probably isn't the solution... I'll need to practice not to move my embouchure as I play. I'll talk more about it with my teacher but it seems like I have a lot of information in my hands!
Unfortunately, playing altissimo is one of my weaknesses because my family members don't exactly the sound of it :/ I really need to get the voicing locked on for those high notes. It's really hit or miss.

Over the winter break when I had my instrument checked out, I realized that he didn't do a very good job checking it. I ended up with a misaligned trill key and I'll need to go to another repair person to get it fixed. Hopefully, a nonfunctional instrument isn't the problem.
