How often should reeds be replaced, and what are the signs that it's time to use a new one?September 30, 2023
Summer offers you the luxury of time and space for creativity. If you’re a beginner musician, this is your chance to put into practice what you’ve learned over the past year in the form of your very first compositions.
If you’re more experienced, it’s an opportunity to play in a group or perform in concert. Because in summer, the days get longer, the diary gets lighter, and the mind gets freer. Fewer constraints means more freedom: meet-ups with friends, dreams becoming concrete projects, ideas maturing, and decisions being made. Let's take a look at the steps you can take during your summer vacation!
Compose an original piece
Take advantage of your free time to compose your own piece for clarinet or saxophone, or even experiment with arrangements for group playing.
Create videos of yourself playing your tracks. You can share them on social media, create a YouTube or TikTok channel, or simply keep them as a souvenir (you can rewatch them a few years later to pick up some nice ideas or appreciate your musical progress).
Participate in musical challenges
Join online musical challenges or competitions for clarinet and saxophone. These challenges will inspire you to explore new musical styles and improve as a musician.
Explore different musical styles
Take advantage of summer to explore a variety of musical styles such as jazz, blues, classical, folk, and more. Learn pieces in these different styles to broaden your musical repertoire.
Create instructional videos
If you're feeling inspired, create instructional videos to share your knowledge and advice with other musicians. In this way, your knowledge and experience can help enrich the online music community.
Organize jam sessions
Get together with your musician friends and organize informal jam sessions. Improvising is a great way to develop your creativity and musical expressiveness.
