Lee Morgan

Lee Morgan is considered one of his generation’s finest clarinetists. Trained by Robert Marcellus and Fred Ormand, he joined the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra at a very young age as Principal Clarinet. The last 30 years, Morgan has been the Principal Clarinet at The Royal Danish Opera Orchestra. Through his passion for teaching, he has helped and shaped a high number of students – in many ways changing the way clarinet playing is being approached in Scandinavia.

Fundamentals

The closest you can get to 1-on-1 lessons with true masters teaching and explaining in great detail the fundamentals of their instrument

This comprehensive class with Lee Morgan will give you a strong fundament of the basics of clarinet playing guided by a master. Whether being an amateur or professional, student or teacher, you will get inspired and get hands-on advice and exercises that will bring your own playing further and develop you as a clarinetist and musician.

See how a professional treats his reads and how he adjusts them - understand why the tongue position is crucial and see how the soft palate can change your playing and give you that last ring and overtones in your sound.

LESSON PLAN

01 Intro

Lee Morgan gives you an overview of the class.

02 The embouchure

Lee Morgan has spent a life in shaping hundreds of students' embouchure. Watch here how you can build your own strong and flexible embouchure.

03 The tongue position

Lee is a "disciple" of Robert Marcellus, and the old french school - and that has a lot to do with tongue position. Understand how crucial the correct position is for the sound production.

04 Breathing and blowing

Get to know not only how to blow efficiently but as importantly how to breathe properly. Lee explains exercises in details in this lesson.

05 Hand position and fingers

Find out why hand and finger positions are important when playing. Shape like holding a tennis ball and relaxing fingers are some keywords of this lesson.

06 Articulation

Articulation is everything for Lee Morgan. He has spent a lifelong career in refining how to play more articulated and how to get the most clear and crisp articulation possible.

07 The soft palate

Learn about how the soft palate can change your sound dramatically. Is it engaged or not? That´s the question.

08 Reeds

Reeds could have taken up the full duration of this class. It´s a big topic, and Lee shares all his ideas and tips about how to get reeds ready and how to optimize and treat them in order to get the reed you dream about.

You are a really good teacher, you explain the fundamentals great! Now it is in my conciousness how it have to feel, when I want to play with a warm, resonanceful tone! Also the topic reeds is really helpful for me. Now I wish me a masterclass about intonation and how to practice, because when I play something like brahms or saint saens or similiar, I have to handle not only musical and character things, also the intonation is a big theme. So I hope you will create a masterclass about Intonation. Ah and I wish me a Masterclass about practice strategies, for different problems. How to learn fast technical parts, or how I have to practice lyrical parts and so on... I hope you read the comments and read my wishes :) Thanks a lot!!!

The fundamental is really helpful and useful. His tone is beautiful and we can learn his tips from this video. His English is clear for me and easy to understand.(I'm a Japanese) That is also helpful.:) Thanks.

Yujiro

I always have been watching this master class video since it came out and I still watch it. It is extremely useful and gives me wider view on my clarinet studies.

Play with a pro is an excellent educational site to improve your clarinet playing skills. I have been impressed with the high quality of the videos which are in High Definition. I highly recommend Lee Morgan, Vol. 1 Clarinet Fundamentals. Lee Morgan is an excellent clarinet player and teacher. His explanations of clarinet fundamentals are well explained with very clear examples. I recommend “Clarinet Fundamentals” to my students and to anyone who is looking to bring his/her clarinet playing skills to the next level. I highly recommend this product.

Victor

Although the entire video is full of insight, my favorite sections were Reeds and The Soft Palate. I have never heard simpler, clearer explanations. I wish every clarinet player could see this.

Niall Reynolds

Even as an experienced working pro I found the Lee Morgan lessons valuable and thought provoking and the playing is as charming as the man.

I am a big friend of Daniel Bonade and his methods of clarinet teaching. And here comes Lee Morgan, who was a student of Robert Marcellus, who was a student by Bonade. So Morgan is able to sum up the knowledge of these old Masters. This fundamental Masterclass was exactly what I had been looking for. Especially the chapters about the embouchure and tongue position gave me a new view on my own playing and - as I would say - helped me getting better a lot.

Keven Weimann

I really enjoyed this lesson on Fundamentals by Lee Morgan. He has a very good way of taking the foundations of the clarinet (which can be quite complex concepts at times) and making them approachable. I Highly recommend this product.

Sara Fullerton
