 Re: books or tutorials on learning- a post script on lessons klezmer

I wish I were a brilliant, experienced Klezmer clarinettist who knew what he was talking about, so that advice from me would be worth listening to.

Alas, that is not the case. The honest answer to any of your questions is: I don't know.

Except that I will say that I wouldn't, in any case, be dogmatic about how Klezmer should be played in general, or how specifically a Klezmer clarinettist should play the instrument. It's YOU doing it so do what YOU want to do, use the embouchure, the mouthpiece, the reeds that YOU want to use to produce the sound that YOU want.

OR if you aren't satisfied with the sound that you're producing and you KNOW what sound you definitely want to produce, by all means try out whatever you can to get there, BUT on the way be content with how you are playing. And that would be my humble piece of advice - to enjoy what you can do NOW while working on getting somewhere else if you really want to.

The above no doubt sounds obvious and not actually useful, but you clearly feel frustration, which I can relate to, but at least you have an ensemble on the go and that's super! And you're listening hard to stuff and working on what you hear, and that can't fail to help immensely. Persevere, you'll be fine, it may take a little while.

By the way, what is the name of your ensemble? Have you got any gigs coming up?
