"A book that some might not know is the recent "Prep Steps Before You Kroepsch" by Kristen Denny-Chambers which is of high quality despite the cutesy title. Similar skills to what Kroepsch works are stressed but at a more 'entry level'. You can find it with a browser search."

Thanks for the tip about this book. I found it for sale on eBay and ordered a copy.

I am slowly working my way back from wrist fusion surgery on my right hand and am finally able to use all of the fingers on my right hand. Scales are a great way to get back in shape, but I am not ready yet for a full work load.

I was able to practice with my left hand during my earlier recovery and that helped keep my embouchure and tongue up to speed - but I got a little tired of the same old C4-Bb4 routine after a few weeks. I have to admit that my left hand is now working quite well!

The doctors say I should make a good recovery in another month or two and the clarinet practice will help me regain all the motion in my fingers.

Cheers,

Ron
