Rebecca, I am well into my retirement years after teaching band for 37 years. I am in the process of trying to really master the clarinet after playing it for most of my life. I spent a lot of time on saxophone playing and feel almost totally comfortable with it most of the time. I am working on the Mozart Concerto, and even the Debussy Premier Rhapsody. I am making progress but sometimes it is hard to see results. I usually practice an hour or more likely two hours a day, sometimes more. You are such a capable clarinetist and at such a young age. I am sure it has a lot to o with talent but I am wondering if you have any thoughts on this.
