80 Graded Studies for Clarinet Book Two is a direct continuation of the first and is designed to take young players to an intermediate level. It concentrates on a number of techniques such as tone quality, dynamics, intonation, articulation, finger technique and playing in character. The wide variety of styles covered by the book fosters a musical understanding in the young clarinetist.
Studies are an established part of every instrumentalist's training. They place technical problems in musical contexts, and can be invaluable aids to development. 80 Graded Studies for Clarinet is a must-have resource for all students and teachers, and the two books feature heavily on the major examination board syllabuses.
