A month ago, I started learning the french horn and so so far, it has been quite the experience!
Now some people seem to suggest that playing a brass instrument can ruin your (clarinet) embouchure, or your sound etc. While on the bass clarinet, my sound has rather gotten bigger thanks to this rather different instrument, I'm not so sure with the soprano clarinet. Not that anyone so far told me my sound got worse.
Still, I'm a little worried. Should I stop playing horn when there's an important project coming up, or is it enriching? So far, I'd say I've discovered aspects of my musicality that I hadn't thought about before. Generally, I'm not inclined to beliebe that you must not "mix" woodwinds with brasswinds - but then, how would I know?
Very interested in hearing your opinions.
