Inaugural London Clarinet Course Summer 2023

I’m pleased to say that the first Emma Johnson Summer Clarinet Course in London went very well. Over 2 days we worked in a large group and in smaller ensembles as well as looking at solo repertoire with piano. We covered many aspects of technique from sound production, tuning and performance anxiety to musical style and the rudiments of improvisation

The food was great – thank you Georgie and Chris! And the weather was good too.

We ended with a concert of pieces ranging from Mozart to Cole Porter and from Bartok to Gershwin.

Thank you to everyone who attended. It was a pleasure to meet you and hear you play!

If anyone would like info about next summer’s course, I’d be delighted to hear from you. Please send an email to the following address:
