 Re: books or tutorials on learning klezmer

Hi, Jacky!

I have that book by Tom Puwalski. He's a fantastic clarinettist, but I didn't find the book to be useful, and I think it is very unlikely that it would help you achieve what you want. The same sort of information is available on various internet sites.

I'm sure that if Tom were to re-write the book, he would now add lots to it, as he certainly has the knowledge to produce a great book on the subject. I wouldn't, however, recommend it in its current form.

BUT I haven't got any other suggestions except to say that there is a video by Andy Statman about playing Klezmer clarinet: "Learn to play Klezmer - Improvising in the Tradition". One would think that this would be very useful, but I have not bought it and have never watched it, so I have no idea what it's like. There are a couple of customer reviews of it on the Amazon site.

Good luck!
