 Re: Clarinet gone horn.

Its a nyssma IV after 4 months of playing, with instruction once a week.

Personally, i just feel like i need more time. I was fine with trumpet and trombone, but i don't know why horn is that much harder. I just need more time to develope the proper technique. I seem to be playing with a clarinet embochure and never using enough air etc.

I spoke to my professor numberous times, and he just doesn't seem to care. He's a great guy, but one of those horribly talented players who really don't understand "why" a kid doesn't understand how to play it. "It's easy, just do it". It got to a point where i broke down crying during my last exam becuase, i worked soo incredibly hard, and really did make improvement.. and he just made me feel like i was two inches tall.

I've gotten help from the top horn players in the school, which is so helpful, but it doesn't help me pass.

I'm just frustrated beyond words.. and really want to throw the horn out the window.

Practice time.
