From the Publisher

Clarinet Sight-Reading 1 aims to establish good practice and provide an early introduction to the essential skill of sight-reading. Sight-reading in some form should become a regular part of a student’s routine each time they get out the clarinet, and this book aims to establish the habit early in a student’s learning process. There are 8 sections, which in a logical sequence gradually introduce new notes, rhythms, articulations, dynamics and Italian terms – much as you would find in a beginner’s clarinet method. The emphasis is on providing idiomatic tunes and structures rather than sterile sight-reading exercises. Each section contains several solo examples, beginning with only three notes, and concludes with duets and accompanied pieces, allowing the student to gain experience of sight-reading within the context of ensemble playing.

Difficulty guide: 1-3
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is total beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).


taken from the back of the book:

  • An approach based on self-learning and recognition of rhythmic and melodic patterns
  • Original tunes, rather than abstract sight-reading exercises
  • 157 carefully graduated pieces in a range of musical styles
  • Seven sections related to the technical development of the clarinettist - with tunes using three notes to tunes which range across the lower and upper registers, from low E to upper A
  • Each section concludes with a set of duets and accompanied pieces for practice of ensemble sight-reading
  • Tunes progress to all key signatures up to two sharps and two flats
