 Re: How to play Armenian style?

Hi Katrina,

Thanks for the response. I've already posted on the gtc forum.

Practice is definitely key. But I've noticed a huge change in sound when I switched from my old student Boehm to a more intermediate Albert (made of wood) clarinet. Also when I changed from a size 3 reed to a size 1 and 1/2. I still have my old mouthpiece so I think the next step is to get a new one.

Things like reed size, mouth piece, special scales/arpeggios, and playing techniques is what I was after.

For example, one technique I've noticed is the heavy use of pickup notes and trills. I can't tell if these are happening with the fingers or with the mouth/tongue, though.
