Your Welcome Message from Michelle Anderson
Hello and welcome! It’s Michelle Anderson, and I’m so glad that you decided to join our community of clarinetists who are looking for ways to play the instrument more easily and to a higher level of mastery.
If you are a total beginner to the clarinet, lucky you! When you choose to learn an instrument following a well-planned, organized lesson structure, you learn far faster than those brave explorers who do it all on their own. You will have the opportunity to learn simple exercises here that prevent the bad habits that inhibit your tone, slow down your fingers and seem to put a giant filter between the beautiful music in your head, and the sounds that actually come out of the instrument. If you are returning to the instrument after many years away, now is a great time to re-learn the instrument with great habits, and take advantage of all of that long-lost knowledge that is still deep inside of you from years gone by. Finally, if you are someone who has been playing regularly for some time, and you may simply like some help to take your tone to the next level. Maybe you would like to improve your tonguing, or how quickly your fingers fly around the instrument. You may just want to feel more confident in your own abilities to make beautiful music on the clarinet. You have come to the right place!
