There are useful technical studies in a variety of keys. There is an
emphasis on developing staccato and velocity, which the player may or may
not be ready for.

Margaret is correct. There is some wonderful material in the Rubank
"Intermediate" method. However, much of the material is too hard, too soon. In
several instances, the material is harder than almost anything in the Rubank
Advanced Method Book One. Also, the book goes too high too soon, leaving the
student discouraged and the parents clasping their ears!

There are a few exercises in there, however, that EVERY clarinetist could
benefit from mastering!
