  • Ten Tips for Making the Most of Practice Time Editor's Pick

    Alison Hockings Clarinet Teacher (Slough) Picture It is often said that the more you practice, the better you will get. Why then do some pupils return to lessons week after week making the same errors? Why do some pupils make slower progress than others? What if you have very limited practice time? The answer is to make the absolute best of whatever time you decide to invest in...
  • Slow and steady wins the race!

    Jordan Black Clarinet Teacher (West London) Picture "With many little strokes a large tree is felled" - Japanese Proverb When I was younger and starting to take clarinet lessons, I wanted everything 'NOW!'.

  • History of Contemporary Techniques

    Sabina Heywood Clarinet Teacher (South East London) Picture History of Contemporary Techniques Where did contemporary techniques for the clarinet originate? -       In Greek museums there are engravings of people playing double pipe instruments.

  • How to inspire pupils to practise with enthusiasm Editor's Pick

    Sabina Heywood Clarinet Teacher (South East London) Picture It is important to understand why a particular pupil may not be enjoying their music practice and once this has been identified, we can begin to resolve the issue. From my experience as a teacher, I have noticed the most common reason for lack of practice stems from the pupil not progressing enough from their private practice. It is...
  • Practice and how to minimise frustration.

    Poppy Beddoe Clarinet Teacher (South West London) Picture A very effective way of getting students to practise is to offer rewards if they do well. This can come in various forms.

If they have practised well and succeeded in learning a piece or a technique then they can be rewarded with a sticker....
  • What effect does good/bad posture have on tone?

    Greg Hearle Clarinet Teacher (South West London) Picture Tone production on the clarinet is the result of the combined activity of various parts of the body, causing the reed to vibrate by means of a directed, pressurised air column.

  • A window of opportunity..?

    Abi Heath Clarinet Teacher (East Central London) Picture Music has been a vital part of human culture ever since people first lived together in groups. Until the dawn of technology, making music was a prime form of entertainment, but today, in an age of instant access to music (on disc, on television, on radio, and online) there is less reason to actually play music ourselves. Set against...
  • The Importance of Being Learners Editor's Pick

    David Mears Clarinet Teacher (Oxford) Picture It is a truism universally echoed that "practice makes perfect". However it is all too rarely that this well-meaning sentiment is critically unpacked. One essential element of effective teaching is the ability to empathise with the situation of the student, all the better to provide appropriate advice, lesson plans, and balance of...
  • Tips for 'playing in' clarinet reeds Editor's Pick

    Charlotte Jolly Clarinet Teacher (Ipswich) Picture It is important when playing the clarinet to select your reeds carefully.
