"The Accomplished Clarinettist", two/three? Books of studies by Rudolf
Jettel. I worked my way through the first book after getting my Grade 8 (16
years ago now - surely it can't be _that_ long!!!). These are (on the whole)
anything but musical (IMHO, obviously) but cleverly constructed to work on
every aspect of technique, and if you can play these, you'll be ready for
almost anything thrown at you...

In conclusion, then: not that I liked them - I hated them so much they're
one of the main reasons I did not go on to study music at
college/university - but they ought to have some benefit.

Study books I have are:-

1) "UHL 48 Studies". Work thru` Book 1 first -24 studies. Pub. by Schott
2) "Gammes et Exercices pour Clarinette" by Gaston Hamelin. Pub. by Alphonse
Leduc. (Expensive)

Work Books:-
1) First pub. in 1958 but is still a wealth of excellence, is "The Art of
Clarinet Playing" by Keith Stein. Pub. by Summy- Birchard Inc. which is now
part of Warner Bros. Publications Inc.
2) "Clarinet" by Jack Brymer. Part of the Yehudi Menuhin Music Guides
Series. Now in paper back. Pub. by Kahn & Averill, London.

Any good music shop won`t have any difficulty with these.
