In the above video I discuss two simple performing adjustments:
1. Don’t perform with clarinet bell right under the music stand. Take a step back.
2. Stand (or sit) up straighter and have the clarinet come to you. DO NOT go to the clarinet with your head or body. This is one of the best tips I know – it fixes a million sins.
ClarinetMike says, “Figure out how performing adjustment #2 applies to you and do it!”
