Re: Collar or no collar? What do YOU do?
Well, this has sort of petered out rather quickly, much to my dismay! About a week and only 16 responses.
But many thanks to those who did participate. I liked the exchange of ideas and results. Very interesting.
I thought it would solicit a few more responses, especially when I look at how many times this topic has been viewed. I'm sure that not all of those views are by unique individuals probably, but I thought I would have had more actual responses than the 16 I count. Any way, here are the unscientific results:
Yes, I use a collar: 11
No, I don't use a collar: 3
I do or I've done both: 2 (one of them is me, I used to make a collar but don't anymore. If anyone is really interested in what I've found, I'll start a new topic.)
Tell your double reed playing friends about this Forum. I think it can be a really useful and valuable tool to both students and teachers alike, but we need more participation.
What do we need to do? Give away toasters or TVs?
