Can't cross the break smoothly?

It's not your fault!

You have been taught the "dumbed-down" way of playing the clarinet.

The "standard" method of teaching the clarinet - first published in the 1930's - yes, that long ago - is based on the recorder - a simple "fipple flute" WITH NO REED. To make the sound on the clarinet is a totally different technique to the recorder.

No doubt too, you have spent months learning the fingerings but with no tuition on making the sound. Now, after all that time, you try to play the "high notes" and you are geting squawks and squeaks if you are lucky.

But these are not the "high notes", merely the MIDDLE register notes. When you know the secret, however, they are incredibly easy to play. The chances are also that your fingering positions are wrong and you have been taught to "bite harder" or "blow harder" for the "high notes". Yes?
