Laurie:

re: hearing the intervals.........

I play both horn & clarinet. I find that I cannot hear the horn intervals consistently the day after playing the clarinet. I believe this is due to the nature of the instruments (Bb clarinet/F horn). The longer the period since playing clarinet, the better I hear the intervals. My solution to the problem is to never play clarinet the night (or two) before a concert. Hearing intervals is generally not a problem on clarinet.

By terrible tone, do you mean thin/weak/wavering/........ I'm going to guess thin. If so, you may be playing on tight lips. What I mean is that your lips are stretched too taughtly on the mpc. Fatten them up a bit like you are whistling (pucker a bit) and see if your tone improves. Make sure to support the air column also. The horn is a long instrument remember.

Hope this helps.

MOO
Matt
