Item Number: S0.277931

Supplemental beginning book for private students and teachers. The book is in 3 sections with preface and appendix items.
Part I: Going Down, Left had position, songs and exercises. Part II:Range Going Up, Over the Break, Extending Range. Part III: Preparatory Technical Exercises, chromatic scales, tonguing. Appendix: Familiar lines and songs, Clarinet Noodles, Progressive Songs, Over the Break Songs. The book was conceived to supplement a classroom band method with specific training for the clarinet in private study. Initial group exercises are not the starting point. The starting point is learning how to properly play A in the staff with correct left hand position. This is the foundation for later ability to go over the break. Simple songs drawn from a world music concept are learned and repeated in different keys and ranges to develop a uniform tone  quality.I have used the material in this book with countless beginning students since it was first notated in 1977. The current edition was updated in 2017.
