 High notes to low notes
Author: Rob Maeda

I am a beginning clarinet student and am having problems with slurring high notes to low notes. Specifically, during today's practice, I was going from D (just below the top of the staff), to low A (by just releasing the register key). Unfortunately, the note never dropped. I tried to do the same thing with other notes, and some worked better than others. Still, I was having a hard time, many notes dropping with a strange transition. Is there a trick to going from high notes to low notes? I can do it if I tongue the notes, but not when I slur them. Also, going from low to high is fine (what my exercise was supposed to be, but that I deviated from).

Thanks a lot,
