Mel Bay Publications, Inc.
This book was written specifically for beginning students working with a private teacher or in an entry-level clarinet class. The author emphasizes correct hand positions, breath control, and tone production needed for a successful start on the instrument, all the while encouraging the student to develop fundamental musicianship.
Particular attention is given to the concept of playing in the rich, low chalumeau range of the clarinet as well as to playing over the break between registers. Finger exercises, daily warmups, a chromatic fingering chart, and helpful tips on accessories, beginning repertoire and care of the instrument complete this insightful volume—essential for any beginning clarinetist’s bookshelf!
