Following the success (and fun!) of my clarinet workshop at the recent New Zealand Concert Bands Association (NZCBA) Festival, and some exceptionally humbling encouragement from participants and band directors, I’ve decided to host my first ever online workshop.
During the first part I will introduce and discuss the many benefits and insights gained through my recent practice in long tones – this isn’t only a musical and technical practice as I’ve been discovering it to be way more holistic than that as a tool for mental and physical wellness.
This will be followed by an open forum to which I invite you to bring any questions you may have about your playing. Participants are also encouraged to contribute their own answers.
Suitable for all ages and levels, whether clarinet is your first, second or umpteenth instrument! If you’ve found yourself teaching it when you haven’t been playing long yourself, please don’t be shy to bring any questions relevant to that.
This workshop is also open internationally and while I may not be the number one clarinet expert in all the world, I bring my own life experience and perspective as a musician, composer, teacher and human who has largely lived, learned and loved life through the clarinet.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your email address to register – I will send the Zoom link in a confirmation email upon receipt of payment.
Looking forward to seeing you there with your clarinet,
Yvette Audain (M.Mus, GradDipTchg) 🙂
