Clarinet basics pupils book – PAUL HARRIS
Clarinet Basics Pupil’s Book is a landmark method by Paul Harris, one of the leading figures in clarinet education. It starts at absolute beginner level and progresses to about Grade 2. There are 22 stages, 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, ‘factfiles’ and ‘quizzes’ to teach notation and general musicianship, helpful, clear ‘fingering charts’ and ‘rhythm boxes’ and great illustrations.
Also available is a book/CD edition as well as a separate accompaniment CD. There is a separate Clarinet Basics Teacher’s Book, which 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
