A few years ago, the city of Hurst, Texas sent out some nice folks to put down new grass in my lawn where they had previously dug it up to fix a water line. As I got out the ClarinetMike Garden Hose to water the new grass in my lawn, I noticed a kink in the hose. So I made sure all the kinks and such were out of the hose and watered my lawn.
I realized this is similar to clarinet (plus saxophone and ALL wind instruments!) playing. We need to make sure our air flows freely without any tension or “kinks” in our body.
