I've been playing the clarinet for 1 year. I used to have a problem with air coming out of my nose when playing. It went away for a bunch of months and is now coming back a little. If anyone has any advice I would appriciate it.


  • Practice breathing exercises and air control, you might be blowing too hard if air is also coming out your nose. – Legorhin Oct 30 '19 at 19:03
  • You can practice and train to close the way that the air searches to pass through your nose by pressing and forming in your mouth a strong nnggkkhh – Albrecht Hügli Oct 30 '19 at 21:17
  • Do you have a teacher? Hard to see what is happening here. Do you have the feeling that you are blowing very hard? It should not be a big physical effort. – danmcb Oct 31 '19 at 9:29
