I thought I would post this here..knowing you'd get what I mean! I played clarinet all through school, even in college despite being an Art Ed. major. I almost went into music ed..but went with art ed. I was fairly talented, it came natural for the most part. So I haven't really played it for like 3 almost 4 years, with the exception of an art lesson I do that incorporates music and I just play a few bits and pieces. I am playing in a community band again and we had our first site read rehersal tonight. I told my old director..he's like how'd it go..i said you want the truth..I suck! lol I had no phrasing, massive squeaking, my mouth kept drying out..I couldn't get myself in tune..it was just bad! Although I do blame still being a bit sick on my lack of breathing...and as always, a horrible reed! Man I hope I improve a lot over the next couple of weeks!
