Clarinet Basics: A Method for Individual and Group Learning (Teacher's Book) (Faber Edition: Basics) (Paperback)
Clarinet Basics is a landmark method by one of the leading figures in clarinet education. It starts at absolute beginner and progresses to about elementary level. There are 22 stages and each section includes a wonderful variety of concert pieces from the great composers, traditional tunes and fun, original exercises, 'finger gyms' and 'warm ups' to help establish a sound technique, 'fact files' and 'quizzes' to teach notation and general musicianship, helpful, clear 'fingering charts' and 'rhythm boxes' and great illustration. This teacher's book offers tips on how to approach new techniques and motivate young players. This book would be particularly helpful for teachers who are not clarinet specialists.
