Developing students are presented with the essential elements of H.L. Clarke's Technical Studies for the Cornet in this clear and easy-to-follow introductory book.
Editor Sea O'Loughlin has maintained the original musical and technical intent, but carefully adapted the materials for the younger player. In particular, My First Clarke is organized by key signature rather than by the technical exercise. This approach better integrates the techniques of Clarke's studies by paralleling the usual progression of learning the instrument.
