Celebrating the life and work of Maurice Porter (1909–1986): The challenge of the perfect embouchure
This temporary exhibition has been postponed until Spring 2021.
This exhibition will include Maurice Porter’s published research and the dental treatments he pioneered in the latter half of the 20th century to improve the embouchure for wind and brass instrument players.
Porter himself an amateur clarinettist understood how important a player's dentition, lip and facial structure are to the sound created by an instrument. With his dental skills he was able to help musicians, many with poor dentition or facial injuries to perform with confidence.
