My main problem is that I can barely get a sound out of a clarinet. Something about makes the instrument so hard and tiring to coax into action.
And when it comes to flute, I can never angle the mouthpiece properly, though that would come with practice.
I am in complete agreement with your assessment of the Tenor Saxophone, that's the one I play. It is awesome. I just need to play louder.
Almost ten years on it, and I can hardly be heard.
Actually... Starting from around Easter in grade five...
I was ten then, I'm nineteen now... Make that almost nine years.
