Stephen -

I have played a really fun piece for solo Eb clarinet by American composer
Barney Childs called "Instant Winners." It's a series of short movements
that may be played in any order; you may also customize the performance by
playing any number of movements. One of the movements calls for the
clarinetist to also play a small bass drum using a foot pedal. If you'd
like a copy of the music, let me know, and I'll send you one, as I'm quite
sure it's not published. Others will undoubtedly send you a lot of
information about other pieces which are more readily available, but I think
you'll be rewarded for looking at "Instant Winners;" they really are!

Have fun,
