Before considering the physiological elements of producinga good tone the student have a good mouthpiece.The mouthpiece and reed are the basic tone generating system ofthe clarinet and the for proper intonation other than the player. The mouthpiece shouldhave a medium tip opening and students should play a reed softer than a Van Doren #2. The mouthpiece shouldrespond easily with a good focus. The CLARK W FOBES mouthpiece isdesigned specifically in this manner. I recommend that studentsmove up to a 2 1/2 or 3 strength reed as soon as possible.
