Today I was asked if I had any tips on how to memorize music. I had to admit that I didn't do it often and couldn't offer much. I suggested listening to a recording, and multiple recordings if possible, to get the piece into your head. I also suggested working on memorizing the piece in smaller segments - possibly even measure by measure. A quick internet search revealed many similar strategies amongst musicians. Here are some links to memorization techniques. Try them out and let me know what works for you. None are specific to clarinet playing, but can be tailored to any instrument. If you use a technique that isn't listed in these websites, please pass it along. I'd love to hear your suggestions!
