          This book cleverly tesches you increasingly tricky technical skills through playing really good tunes, with the result it's enjoyable and the lessons stick. A well thought out and fun way to develop your playing.

          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.

          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.

          This book has proved extremely popular with my students. The studies are both challenging and enjoyable to play. Due to it providing an exercise for grades 1 through to 7, it represents the best value for money.

          I think that James Rae's 40 Modern Studies For Solo Clarinet is a great book because the pieces are fun to play and have loads of challenging elements. I got full marks for my Study in my AB exam thanks to Tumbledown Blues!

          This is a great book to buy if you are a beginner, or an advanced player, it has songs ranging from Grade 1 - Diploma standard. I found all the songs help you improve your technique a great deal. It is a great book and I would highly recommended it.

          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.

          Forty modern studies for solo Clarinet is a great book and I would definately recommend it to any player of any level. This book will last up to diploma and has some very enjoyable pieces in it. James Rae has written some great songs and has created a great book.

          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.
