In my late 50’s, after decades of desire, I finally decided to start learning to play the clarinet. But with my busy and unpredictable schedule, I did not have time to commit to regular lessons. I started practicing on my own and soon experienced issues and needed help. I searched the internet and encountered Michelle Anderson’s clarinet lesson and community website. As I viewed her videos on YouTube it became apparent very quickly that she was a top professional clarinetist who had a tremendous gift for teaching. Having many decades of experience in teaching students, she knows how to explain and demonstrate principles effectively so the student can internalize them. She imparts the fundamentals and creates the foundation for good (lifelong) technique. Through her How To Play Clarinet More Easily course I am continuing to experience an ongoing process of improvement in all dimensions of playing - tone, high notes, articulation, fingering, rhythm…. Her lessons opened my eyes to the vital importance of “fast air” to make good sound. She showed me how to achieve a good embouchure. She answered many of my nagging questions such as why I was “getting squeaks” and why at times it seemed “difficult to blow”. I even found answers to questions concerning reeds and mouthpieces. Finally, and maybe most importantly, I find her lessons highly enjoyable and I look forward to future sessions with her videos.
