It is essential for students to develop all the necessary aspects that result in fine clarinet playing. These include proper breathing and posture, hand and finger position, appropriate embouchure, beautiful tone production, crisp articulation, solid rhythm, virtuosic technique, and an ability to freely express musical ideas on the instrument. When students possess a solid technical foundation in these areas, then some of the most challenging repertoire becomes easily accessible. To this end, I have combined the pedagogical methods that were presented to me by my teachers and mentors. From these methods, I have developed my own teaching method that will improve each student’s playing. I wholeheartedly believe that it is my responsibility to identify their strengths and weaknesses and constantly work on improving all the elements of a student’s playing. I also find it important to help students master several extended techniques, such as multiple tonguing, circular breathing, a variety of multiphonics, and other extended techniques depending on a student’s level.
