THE EDUCATOR’s GUDE to THE CLARINET
This is the definitive treatise on clarinet playing for clarinettists – not only teachers but all will benefit from this fantastic book and Leslie recommends it.
The care and attention to detail of every aspect of clarinet playing from reed selection, mouthpiece selection, embouchure formation, breathing technique and far more is explained in meticulous detail.
It will improve any clarinettist and teacher. Not just for teachers – this is a book for all clarinettists to learn how to play the clarinet PROPERLY !!
THE THUMB SADDLE – a solution for tight closed fingers and tension in the hands
fits on the back of the conventional thumb rest and is stepped out from the back of the clarinet effectively making the diameter of the clarinet wider and opening the hand to give more individual digital control and eliminate tension (which can lead to tendonitis)but only if the thumb rest is in the correct position – i.e. index and thumb opposite each other.
Note from Les :
If your thumb rest is not in that position I strongly recommend you have a repair tech move it and then apply the Thumb saddle. Some adjustable thumb rests require some padding between the saddle and the body of the clarinet so if this is the case please inform Les when ordering and he will include some packing material to put between thumb rest and clarinet body – either felt or Velcro on both saddle and body of clarinet can eliminate the gap if any.
