Clarinet7, I do think that that was boasting. It's great that you think you're good, but do you do everything in Micron's list?

I've been playing single reeds for ten years. I've learned (or heard) most of these things, but I wish I had Micron's list eight years earlier! It would've helped me out a lot.

i don't have teachers to guide me...

the only way to improve at anything, be it clarinet, any other instrument, or baseball or cooking, is to practice. micron's tips are very good. you should work on things not until you can do it right, but until you can't do it wrong.

I'm about to go into my third year of playing. Second year was fun and my most improved year. I started my second year not being able to go from an A to a B flat without squeaks. Not I can and much more! One thing that helped me was that playing in a small band my first year didn't pressure me to much, but when I got into a band of 82 I had a ton of pressure, and being in first chair didn't help. I began to practice every night for about 20-30 minutes, which improved me and then in regular class I would improve even more because I was working hard at it. So if you just work at it, and like you really mean it, you can be awesome!

remember aswell, don't practise so much that it becomes a bit of a drag, because then you'll start putting it off and not wanting to practise. the best thing that i find helps is how much i enjoy playing, and keeping that it mind, and having realistic targets encourages me to practise. i do recommend though that you find yourself a good private teacher, one that has been playing for at leat 20-30 years, because they will not only have skill, but experience and wisdom, and they can help set you targets etc.

Trust me, I told myself that I was good and didn't practice. At one point, I was good, btu then about a week after, those practicing people got really good and I was just reed dust in the wind. I then made practicing fun. Yes, fun. Trust me, making it so that you want to practice will take you VERY far.

study your music and try to practice every day for 1-2 hours. and always we your reed before playing. you also should do breathing excersises before actually playing to get your body warmed up, such as breathing in for one quarter note and blowing out for 8 counts. I have a doctor in music help me with my music, and she has helped me so much, enough that I could make county band for my 3rd yr now(not trying to boast)But anywho if u do everything that everyone is telling you to do you will become a great player withing a few months =)
