What a difference a vowel makes: Clarinet Tone and Tuning

I wanted to share this great article I found from Vandoren's website! In the article, clarinetist Paula Corley describes correct clarinet embouchure in a very clear way, which is not always easy to do. Here's a link to the article:

Vandoren also has many other articles for clarinet and saxophone players, students, and teachers, as well as parents of clarinet and saxophone players. If you're interested in speaking with a Vandoren rep about anything clarinet or saxophone related, they will have a representative attending our Maryland Horns of Plenty event this Saturday April 28th from 10am - 2pm in Ellicott City. There will also be representatives from D'addario (maker of Rico reeds as well as other musical accessories), and instrument makers such as Yamaha, Conn-Selmer, Buffet, Jupiter, Eastman, and P Mauriat. If you'd like to attend, give us a call at (301) 881-6440 and we can set an appointment for you.
