In simple format this tutor lays out the basic steps for the beginner clarinetist. The method presents a varied diet of musical examples in all styles for the young player to discover and digest. Operating on the premise that practice time should be something to look forward to, not a chore, the author emphasizes fun and experimentation which will in time help the student to develop into a complete musician. Full-color photographs, cartoons, and diagrams enhance the presentation and aid in understanding. The play-along CD provides accompaniment both with and without the clarinet for most of the exercises.
