Resuming acquaintance with the clarinet

I suddenly got nervous that I’d forgotten totally how to play clarinet. I’ve been concentrating so much on writing music that I’ve hardly played at all. I got the Bb out tonight and played some Smart Music exercises and actually had fun. They’ve got some new ear training exercises in the jazz style that start off reasonably easy but get challenging pretty quickly. What a blast! And no, of course I haven’t forgotten how to play!

Otherwise, it’s cold and snowy and gets dark early.
