So here are a few I like that were nominated….

And lets hope that Chris Brown doesn’t win anything…..
Oh…..my……God…….I think my tongue just curled up from fright.
Very cool video of how wood clarinets are made.
I heard about this on the Klarinet list this morning, and now it is verified. Sad. He made and complied a lot of wonderful things.
Farewell: Himie Voxman:
Himie Voxman (1912-2011)
Influential music educator and longtime
University of Iowa faculty member Himie Voxman has passed away at the age of 99. If you are a woodwind player, you have almost certainly used, at some point in your musical studies, something written or edited by Professor Voxman.
the Iowa City Press-Citizen’s tribute for a nice overview of his life and career.

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
We make tools for these kinds of people.
While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
Ok, I hijacked the title from
Bret Primentel’s blog entry about it. (read his summary on Davd’s article. It’s good)
David Erato decided he wanted to get better on clarinet. So, he set up a regimen to do just that.
“The idea as a “doubler” is to make whatever instrument is in your hand not feel like a foreign object. One should really study the instrument as if it is the only instrument you play. Practice the same method books, etudes, solos, as a clarinetist in a symphony once did. Jump through the same hoops and walk the same path traditional clarinetists do. “
I did something similar about 8 years ago with Oboe……
Over December, my sites were hit with a TON of spam users registering. And they post stories about viagra for sale and whatnot. I decided to purge any users without any comments or posts, and implement a CAPTCHA for new registrations to help cut down on the spam.
Thanks for understanding.
