Overhaul Your Clarinet Section Music Education by Joel Wagner - October 10, 2008July 1, 201011 I hear a lot of bands with good clarinet sections. I have a few bands with bad clarinet sections. I hear a few bands with great clarinet sections. What I will tell you in these next few paragraphs will definitely transform any bad clarinet section into a good one. They could even make a good section a great one. It's all about tone I have recently become convinced that one of the best indicators in the quality of a band is the overall band sound. By that, I mean the way that the band balances between sections, the way that the instrumentalists blend into their section sound, and the way that each person sounds individually. Technique is the easy part.
