Clareidoscope: Say Goodbye to Awkward Articulation with David Cook and Cassie Keogh

“Say goodbye to awkward articulation…”; The biggest challenges with articulation come down to three basic principles: placement on the reed, part of the tongue touching the reed, and keeping air going through articulation. Since we can’t see inside our mouths, describing is also difficult. So, instead, we will work through three simple exercises that help us articulate clearly and cleanly with ease. All ages and expertise are welcome, especially junior high and high school students!
