Kloze-Lazarus Method for Clarinet (A Comprehensive Course Based on Two Famous Methods). By Klose-Lazarus. Arranged by Harvey S. Whistler. For Clarinet. Woodwind Method. 96 pages. Rubank Publications #RUBL100. Published by Rubank Publications (HL.4470740).
This Rubank gem represents a compilation of two celebrated clarinet methods, completely revised, re-edited and re-styled for modern studios and classrooms. The wealth of valuable materials, used for clarinet instruction since the late 19th century, was reorganized by Rubank editor Harvey Whistler into a progressive educational format to meet the needs of beginning to intermediate clarinet students. In his edition Whistler also provided:
• Additional material to comprehensively cover the low register and crossing the break
• Instructional units organized by key as well as topic, culminating with melodic studies incorporating each new idea
• Exercises for tone development, particularly in the upper register, incorporated into each unit.
