In this episode of the podcast I am joined by the wonderful Eugene Mondie, who is the acting Principal Clarinet of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington D.C. He shares his thoughts on why you shouldn't get "sentimental" about your gear, what kind of adjustments need to be made as a player if you want to use the double lip embouchure, advice on being an adaptable musician, mastering your auditions, and much more.

In this episode of the podcast, I'm joined by none other than Ricardo Morales, who is the Principal Clarinetist of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Not only is Ricardo one of the most sought-after clarinetists of his generation, but he's also one of the few people in the world who has had the chance to literally design his own instrument. The collaboration between Ricardo Morales and Backun Musical Services led to the world-renknown (and Canadian-made) Backun MoBa clarinet series.

We discuss what it was like collaborating with Morrie Backun, including why he prefers Cocobolo to Grenadilla, and the interesting reason why he, at first ,asked Morrie to dye his red cocobolo instrument black. Ricardo shares many insightful and inspirational moments about music, life, practicing, and much more.

In this episode of the podcast, I’m joined by the inventor of the innovative “ReedJuvinate” product called John Mackey, who also happens to be a biomedical researcher at the University of Alberta. We discuss the design, features, and benefits of the product, some of the science behind why it works (including some rather disturbing experiments that show just how gross your reeds really are!), and how it will help you get longer lasting, read-to-play reeds and stay healthy at the same time.

In this episode of the podcast, I debate four topics with co-host Andrew Morrow. The topics discussed in this episode are:

  1. "What book should every clarinetist read?"
  2. "What is your concept of the clarinet's air stream? Is it cold and fast, or warm and slow, and why?"
  3. "Which clarinet material do you prefer and why?"
  4. "What is the best type of ligature material?"

If you'd like to take part in debates as they happen, please join the Clarineat Community. If you have an idea for a future debate or discussion topic please submit it on Wednesdays in the Clarineat Community or send it to feedback@clarineat.com.
