 Can doubling on tenor sax affect my embouchure?
Author: SKlarinette

I am new to this forum, and just need some outside advice...I hope you can help me. I am a senior clarinetist in high school, and plan on going into music in college next year. My top priority is my clarinet and practicing for auditions throughout the year.
My director asked if I wanted to learn tenor sax for our school's extracurricular jazz band, and at first I was excited and agreed. However other clarinet players that I have talked to have warned me that learning sax can have detrimental affects on your embouchure due to the difference in mouthpiece angle/tongue position/firmness etc.
I think jazz would be a neat experience, but if it will affect my clarinet I definitely would want to avoid learning a new instrument. What do you think?
