          Great for more advanced students and something a bit different than the usual Christmas tunes....
          Probably only suitable for good readers and of standard grade 6 and above.

          The backing is great. The main tune, or 'head', if you like, is quite easy to play. Maybe Grade 2-3, but then the written impro sections are SO difficult, harder than Grade 5. Very odd. I suggest just making up your own impro section using the piece's pentatonic, before it returns to the tune again at the end. I trialled the series by just getting the clarinet book. All notes are playable on Tenor sax too, so I doubt it's worth getting that book as well. If that's the case they should call the book clarinet/tenor sax, to be fair.
