Customer Rating These little pieces are graded form (I think) about 1 to 6, so the book will have a long life. As well as putting you through your paces technially, they're catchy and enjoyable to play, and cover a wide range of jazz and popular idioms.

Customer Rating This is another excellent book of compositions by James Rae. Working from easy pieces to pieces of Grade 8 standard this book is excellent for any budding clarinetist. Highly recommend it.

Customer Rating Excellent set of studies with all types of style covered from jazz, modern classical through to rock.

Customer Rating I bought this book on the recommendation of my friend who has been practicing the clarinet exercises in this for a while. He has progressed to more advanced stuff but still finds the exercises in this book very helpful to revise to keep his technique perfect. I have found it very useful so far.

Customer Rating Good variety of pieces to play getting more complex as progressing through the book with the last few being a challenge. Tumbledown Blues is my current favourite. It'd be nice if there were an accompanying CD to check that I have got some of the more complex rhythms correct.
