 Hello! Finally going back to the clarinet and need advice!
Author: Erica

Hello everyone!

None of you probably remember me. I posted avidly on this forum back from May 2004 until July 2004. I played and was really passionate about clarinet.

For a while, however, I had other plans and other interests. I spent four years doing my undergraduate work in jazz composition/arranging in a music conservatory, with piano as my primary instrument. And the clarinet just stood quitely and idly in my bedroom back in Albany for those four years without ever being taken out.

Jazz Composition and Piano are still by far my primary interests, but I've been starting to pick up the clarinet again. Man, are the sounds nowadays murderous! I notice, very likely from not playing for 4/5 years, that all my mouth muscles get worn out after about 10-15 minutes.

I used to be on at least an hour/day routine, if not more, prior to my undergrad years. Any advice on how to "shape back up" into a regular routine?
