Clarinet Methods:
The Galper series "clarinet for beginners bk.1" is an extremely thorough,
well thought out tutor for the beginner to intermed. student. Refreshing
Qualities;
There is nothing to throw away. Every exercise flows naturally to the
next. The exercises are necessarily brief. Tunes are logically placed after
technical exercises. A great long term resource; It takes most students at
least 2 years to get through. It is used in tandem with many band
programmes here in Northern Alberta.
Drawbacks: My Jewish students are a little reluctant about playing the 4 or
so Xmas Carrols till I suggest to them that they probably originated as
pagan drinking songs. I don't know. I am a little curious as to how Boosey
gave up the rights to such an excellent method book. Now available through
Waterloo.

=======================================================

Wow, none of my Jewish students at all mind the couple of Christmas songs.
In fact, when I sometimes skip them, they ASK to play them. It's a shame
how uptight some folks are.... Those carols are harmless, it's not like
they are playing "Jesus Loves the Little Children".
Abe put out a new series titled Clarinet Method (books 1 and 2), replacing
the "Clarinet for Beginners" series. I like them better. More instructional.
