Breathing and Clarinet Masterclass

Trumpet Masterclasses from Kristian Steenstrup
Length: 90 minutes

Kristian Steenstrup
Breathing fundamentals for Clarinet plus Masterclass

90 minutes program and introduction to a new way of playing the clarinet. You will learn about the great benefits the Breathing and Blowing ideas have to offer your own playing on a daily basis. No hokus pokus- simple and down to earth ideas and exercises.

Plus you get to see in real life how these exercises and tools work on a real piece of music- the Mozart Clarinet Concerto- 1st and 2nd mvt

Kristian Steenstrup is regarded one of the finest music pedagogues of his generation. He travels all over the world and gives workshops and masterclasses with the major orchestras, music schools and is professor in Aarhus- Denmark where students from all over the world comes to study with him to improve their playing.

Be ready to get surprised of the extraordinary changes his methods and exercises will have on your own playing- being a brass/woodwind or even singer or string player.

It´s no exaggeration to say it will dramatically change your playing even after a few days work with these simple yet very efficient exercises.


Those exercises he gives us are really helpful. Since I have been doing them every day before starting my practice process,I noticed my sound have changed more clearly and steady from my sound recordings. I would like to appreciate his lessons. Thank you!

Breathing exercises have over the course of a few months become natural and greatly extended my playing capacity. It explains how to improve and play with less effort. The Mozart Concert is demonstrated with great practicality and offers a route to enhance playing. Breathing devices are available in U.S.A. I had goods shipped to U.K. and received damaged useless items.

I love it! It's actually very helpful and now I have a full tone without straining myself! I love it! I can't stress enough how helpful these videos have been!

Edward Yeo

Very nice! Very new and helpful. Now that I see this video my air support is a WHOLE lot better and I actually sound like I can play loud enough in an orchestra, without straining myself.

Oddly enough many clarinet teachers do not like to talk extensively about breathing. This video is the solution to the issue - a simple and practical discussion of breathing with an invaluable set of exercises to go along with it.

Of course Steenstrup is a great pedagogue. He masterfully explains all questions referring to breathing and blowing. As I had never heard of Arnold Jacobs and his book "Song and Wind" it was both interesting and inspiring hearing from it. The ideas presented by Steenstrup are clearly, simple and healthy. I like the little gadgets he uses and recognize that I am playing better and more freely when doing some exercises from this Masterclass. The only thing I do not like that much is the way he teaches the Mozart Concerto. Somehow I have the feeling he wants too much from the student and it appears to be some kind of overacted. On the other hand I must admit this opens a new dimension on playing this concerto as long as you know how to deal with Steenstrups suggestions.

I really enjoyed this video lesson from K. Steenstrup. I learned a lot about how my own breath support was lacking and how I could improve it. His simple techniques and tips have really helped my own playing. The techniques are simple and can easily be integrated into daily practice; really any wind player can benefit from this knowledge! I am thankful to Mr. Steenstrup for making this information readily available to anyone!

Amazing video! It's nice because Mr. Steenstrup is a very updated and smart person. Many people still have the old way of doing things. Once I did his method my clarinet playing increased dramatically!

I am relly grateful to K. Steenstrup and his team for this excellent way of tutoring and sharing his profound insight! The structure, the breathing warm-up programme as well as Steenstrups comparisons like clarinet routines to toothbrushing are really convincing! I only feel insecure about my tongue position when doing the warm-up. K. Steenstrup mentions that it is crucial to avoid friction with the tongue, but how? Information is well-balanced between theory and practise and I really like the lively conversations that give a sense of authenticity. I was just wondering whether a list of keyterms might make more non-English people buy this product? Delivery is really well-done. I have just missed some illustrations/drawings (in the way Charles Neidich does) at one or the other point that exercises could be visually input the more effectively. All in all, please do continue producing such high-quality teaching media.
