My question is still how do "we " activate "inhalation" for playing the clarinet. SDR's link to the Stough Institute is very good. It deals mostly however with the involuntary action of the diaphragm. (I couldn't get the video to work. ) This is our daily shallow rhythmic breathing. When we play the clarinet we breathe in by activating something..... My concern here involves pedagogy or teaching. The student learns to hold the instrument, what to do with the embouchure , and then before any sound is made he must activate breathing in. My point here is that any mention of the diaphragm is superfluous here.
It may very well be that the diaphragm is of monumental significance to "blowing" the clarinet but that is not the issue here. I still believe the "diaphragm pushing down" is a natural biproduct of breathing in. You can't breathe in (I'm talking consciously/voluntarily) without it pushing down. Any use of the word "diaphragm" as an instruction to a student regarding inhalation is interesting but is way down the list of what should be said.
Some people allude to how straightforward this subject is. I am not of this opinion. Tony Pay takes does not agree with Arnold Jacob.(he does have a good first name!) Does this not indicate something? Also the Stough Institute dedicates itself to studying this "straightforward" subject?
