A word from our teachers

“There is a necessity to keep the body trained. I think we are very reluctant as players to keep the technical side up together. We sort of mature as musicians, then we might have much more serious thoughts about the Brahms sonata or something. But actually the physical thing of keeping your fingers active is very important. So whatever amount you have to allocate in a day, half should be on technique and the other half should be on enjoying the folk style clarinet music."
