I use this to build technique and endurance. I am a self taught amateur playing with community jazz and church groups. I enjoy getting immersed in these classical pieces. The arrangements are in many keys and require all fingerings. I am having a great musical practice time with this great workbook!

Baroque Music for Clarinet
The clarinet post-dates the entire baroque era. Filling this gap, Himie Voxman's "Classical Studies for Clarinet" includes transcriptions of unaccompanied Bach and Handel pieces originally for violin and cello. The unaccustomed technical challenges they present may surprise the advanced player. And the music you make will be gratifying. After 40 years of playing, it is still fun for me to take them out and work on them.

A Clarinetist's Necessity
"Classical Studies" is a must for the serious clarinetists. These "studies" are mostly cello sonatas by Bach. Written for string instruments, these sonatas are a breathing, phrasing, and endurance challenge. Also, they will enhance technical proficiency (in just about every key). The big difference between this and other studies is the beautiful music you will enjoy while practicing!
