 Advice on playing Klezmer?
Author: Jaysne 
Date:   2012-11-18 22:05

So I'm going to play the lead clarinet book in Fiddler in a couple of months. It has a few nice Klezmer-style solos.

I've learned clarinet mainly in a traditional classical style, though I've played some dixieland as well. I've listened to some Klezmer and have a good idea of how it's supposed to sound. As I was practicing today, I would alternate between a looser then tighter embouchure than normal, and incorporated some scoops (starting flat and then bringing up to pitch) as well as occasional growling (humming while blowing). Basically, I'm trying to imitate what I've heard Klezmer guys do.

Can any real Klezmer players give me some ideas about how to make my playing sound authentic? Thanks.
