 Playing without a mouthpiece?
Author: Ginny

I believe I read some time ago about the technique of playing w/o a mouth piece. My son, 11 (who's played clarinet for three months) can make a very recorder like sound by blowing a stream of air across the barrel, similar to (but different from) the old soda bottle whistle. My husband showed him how to play PVC pipes (he plays an ethnic flute that plays this way.) The clarinet sounds like a recorder, in C rather that Bb. Is this the way to play without a mouthpiece or is there some other technique? Any recordings?

Thanks again.
