Re: How to create lighter fingers on clarinet
Do you have access to Rose Etude #1 from the 40 Studies? This etude can help you teach her how to "squeeze and release" her fingers. To execute this etude properly, the fingers must move fluidly from interval to interval. Put simply, the fingers should only squeeze when they are needed, and then go right back to soft and waiting in position. I'd be happy to discuss this with you further if you leave your email.
