 Re: Thoughts on Playing the Clarinet in Tune

This is definitely a good starting point for intonation. The part about more easily hearing flat pitches was interesting because I have certainly noticed that to be true, but have never seen it actually stated before.

The real impossible situation, which was hinted at by Paul Aviles, is what do you do when some people in the ensemble are playing at one pitch and others at a different pitch.
This is the most uncomfortable situation, I find, because no matter which way I adjust it still sounds wrong. When there is no group center of pitch everyone feels like they're always out of tune, and it is just horrible.
