This clarinet embouchure packet was designed to help you be a better beginning band director so your students can be better musicians. We all know that good teachers are experts at saying the same thing a million different ways and that a picture is worth more than 1,000 words. That was the inspiration for this project!

Through our many years of teaching we have collected sayings, phrases, tips, tricks, recommendations and advice from friends, colleagues, clinicians, and instrumental music classes. The photos included in this project are of our band director friends and college music majors. We appreciate the time they dedicated in making this project successful. We hope you find these guides helpful in teaching your beginning band students!
