 Baermann Boot Camp Round Two
Author: BethGraham 
Date:   2019-05-22 15:44

Jenny Maclay (aka Jenny Clarinet) is holding her Baermann Boot Camp again starting June 1. The goal is to work through all of Baermann III in a month. More info here:


Perhaps those of us on this forum could use this thread for encouragement and commiseration.

(Disclaimer: As a new clarinetist I don't yet have the chops for Baermann, so I plan on working through the more beginner-friendly Galper Scales and Arpeggios.)

Anyone want to play along?

This looks like a good challenge! Thanks!

Hijinks ensue starting tomorrow.

I'll be using the Galper Scales and Arpeggios for most of it, attempting a bit of Baermann proper as I'm able for octave and other exercises.

I hope some others of you join in: misery loves company, and all that. (Mind you, I *have* been looking forward to giving this a go!)

Edited to add on Day 2: This boot camp promises to kick my butt. I'm still learning alternative pinkie fingerings, so even doing this slowly is quite challenging -- not to mention time consuming. No pain, no gain, though, right?!
