The barrel has a small and a huge end, and even though it is likely apparent to you, be certain that your youngest students place the barrel on in the accurate course, with the larger side of the barrel becoming onto the higher joint. Finally, place the mouthpiece on the barrel, and then the ligature and reed, in that order. Remember to keep the tenons well greased with good, clean cork grease, but do not allow too much of it to increase on the cork. Instead, wipe excess grease off before making use of more in order that it doesn't get sticky. Use only the amount of cork grease you have to if you want
to get a smooth, easy
connection, and try this only when it turns into difficult to slip the tenons in combination. Disassembly should follow the contrary order.
