Instruments 11/18/15 FOR SALE: My Leblanc 14392 (from 1984) is a great high professional level instrument in great playing condition. It has the famous Leblanc quality excellence of very deep resonating sound in all registers. I have used this instrument successfully in many recordings ( Edward Vesala Sound&Fury) in my professional career and it has always responded greatly to all you want from it. This instrument was completely overhauled by Woodwinds/Helsinki. There was once a small scarf in the curve-part but is was overhauled completely and the instrument is in perfect intonation. There is an extra hook made in the upper clarinet part which enables one to hang it on your neck in good balance and makes a standing position playing possible.The case is specially made very strong flight case which you can put safely in aeroplane if you want. The interior part of the case is self-made - not exactly beautiful but works very well. This seems to be a very rare instrument - can't find from the net easily any of these:) Price: 7900e

Looking for a solid instrument that will be played passionately and with lots of love. Finances are on the tight side, so I'm looking for a rare or hard-to-sell instrument that is amazing. I used to have an early-1900's Buffet low C with a serial number of 'Z' on it, and a bell the size of a tenor - hybrid / bridge Albert / Boehm system with double register key.

My approach to teaching focuses on cultivating a richness of musicianship and providing students with the skills to express themselves on the clarinet. A primary goal to this comprehensive approach involves helping students learn about learning, gain problem-solving skills, and become self-reliant. Together we can engage in a process of acquiring an arsenal of strategies so the student can feel confidence and command in any musical situation.

My teaching employs a classical foundation, emphasizing sound production as a primary means of expressing each student's artistic voice. Beauty of tone, versatility of color, complete dynamic control, sensitive intonation and a well-loved legato become tools that set an artist's imagination free. Students do scale/pattern practice and classical etudes to gain facility and understand harmonic structure. As in learning a language, skills may be acquired consciously; however, the mastery of skills results in an intuitive musical intelligence and deep resource of artistry. Sightsinging, dictation, and the discussion and integration of music theory further this cultivation of musicianship. Students learn classical solo and chamber music repertoire and additionally explore jazz, folk traditions, free improvisation and creations of their own composition.
