From the Publisher
The Systematic Exercises begin with the basic portion of each finger and then cover virtually every possible fingering combination that a clarinetist might face. The author has included a large number of exercises in the high register since most passages there have more complicated fingerings.
Current developments in music have tremendously increased the technical challenges facing clarinetists. These exercises will serve as an almost irreplaceable companion and supportive guide especially for the young, ambitious instrumentalist.
The Systematic Approach to Clarinet Finger Technique is the version for Boehm system clarinet which was painstakingly edited by Allan Ware.
The 18 Chapters of exercises are accompanied by extensive instructions, a compilation of the functions of each finger of both hands, and a removeable table containing the basic patterns used in every chapter.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
