This week's topics include: Which way should you pull the swab (and does it matter)? Does key plating make a difference for sound, feel, and response? Is humidification really necessary? And thoughts on individually-wrapped reeds.

In this episode of the podcast, Peter Cigleris discusses his professional career as a freelance clarinetist in London, his latest album called "English Fantasy," and how he became an early adopter of the Backun MoBa clarinets, in spite of being half way around the world at the time of their release.
Throughout the conversation, Peter shares some truly valuable advice that all clarinetists can use no matter their career goals, including the importance of finding balance between your artistic, business, and family life, and ensuring that you are on the right path musically.
