Dear Les-

My band director uses the Best in Class books to teach us fingerings
on our clarinets. I refer to mine whenever I am going over my scales. She
uses this on the 7th and 8th grade level, and uses the TIPPS band method for
corales and stuff like that. I would go to my local music store and check
out one of these books. I liked the fingering charts.
