Mark -- I totally agree with the fact that there have been (and still are) teachers that really did not play, but were (are) fine teachers. My comment was only to illustrate that many who teach professionally do not play professionally (and, likely, never have). Furthermore, we can all differ on what, as I stated, one regards as playing.

As far as ChattyClar's comment "She knew more about clarinet than most who play professionally. I say this because her students consistently outperformed students who studied with professionals in the DC military bands." ...well, a generalization such as this is little more than unsubstantiated, opinionated drivel. Unless you have taken the time and effort to study with and learn from "most professionals" you have little right to comment on what you really have no idea about.

Furthermore, we can argue forever on what a professional really is...i.e., there are many (despite the fact that they do earn a military income) who feel that those in the service bands are not professional, etc. And if you do happen to regard this genre of musician as professional, it hardly encompasses the entire professional world; in fact, it barely scratches the surface.

You obviously had a very talented teacher who very well possibly attracted similarly talented students. However, to use this as an indictment of "most who play professionally" is nonsense.
