 Re: Clarinet teacher that can't play instrument

Dear BandMom:

I'm another one here who insists that students play and analyze their own playing. I never play along until the student has been playing at least six months and has established his/her own sound. Then, wean them as soon as possible.

My role is to help them evaluate, re-enforce (and/or change) what they're doing with the aim of playing well. In other words, give them the tools they'll need to carry on, on their own. They can listen to recordings and live performances for an overall concept of what a good, or not so good, sound is. They don't need me for that. Playing well independently, musically and technically, is our aim from the beginning and that's for the student to achieve, not the teacher  :)

Over many years passed, some of the best tips and examples I've gotton of playing musically has come from players of other instruments as well as vocalists and non-players.
