> might nose plugs help here if at all?

Haha, I tried that recently. Not effective since the pressure that causes the snorting is strong enough to open a small passage on my nostril for air to get out.

As for kdk's first reply, thanks for the time invested into the response! I also agree that maintaining daily practice does stabilize the issue way more than doing several day breaks, i could notice this specially during schooltime because I practiced every day and at wednesdays, in which I had all the activities that require playing in the conservatory in the same chunk, I can handle 2:30 hours playing with this problem only getting worse at the last 30.

I also started going to a different band, as the one I currently was on is pretty much dead, and during this time I practiced every day, I remember being able to handle the entire 2 hour rehersals (with breaks, of course) without any snorting issues, which gives me hope. A month ago I also participated on an orchestra stage (I'm from Portugal by the way) and during the 3/4 days I had to be playing I only had a small snort at the concert, which I managed to control voluntarily.

I try to relax my playing a lot, but I tend to get stressed about the snorting, which greatly affects staccato. I also notice (and I can't control this) that my neck gets really puffed when blowing through the clarinet, as much relaxed as I can be.

Looking forward for more replies!
