 How to play Armenian style?
Author: hambone42

Hi all,

First time posting here. I just got an albert system Bb clarinet from Armenia and I'm trying to learn how to play Armenian style music. I've played on a classic Boehm system for a few years, and was classically trained so things like bending notes are new to me.

I've recently spoke with someone who told me that I needed very thin reads to play Armenian style music (0.5 - 1), I only managed to find a 1.5 Rico.

I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what's going on, for example, in this video:

Is he bending, trilling, etc? What are the techniques that I must learn to play like this?

Thanks!
-Sam
