My parents are both musicians and I grew up playing the clarinet. It was always a little frustrating and kind of boring.
High school marching band directors inevitably seem to be brass players.
I still play the clarinet and also own and play E-flat alto, E-flat soprano, and bass clarinets, but until I started playing the tenor saxophone I didn't realize what I had been missing. I enjoy playing the sax far more than any type of clarinet because I finally have what I can never have on the clarinet.
