Clarinet/Clarinet playing throat air leakage
When I play, air leaks in my throat to my nose. It a very abnoxious sound and it is a squeaking sound (sounds like when you try to hold a laugh in and some comes out) I have become very self conscious of it because honors band is coming up. Please help!!! I can send you a sound recording over email if you'd like.
I am not totally sure. This may be a medical issue. I will tell you that many times we hear things happening that are not audible to the others around us. What I can suggest is to make sure you are keeping your air pressure consistent into the horn. If this doesn't help, please consult an ENT doctor. I can tell you that I have had many kids come to auditions with these sort of issues that don't affect the grade I give them. Be confident and know your stuff ESPECIALLY sight reading and you should do fine. I hope this helps.
