If you need  to get a book about clarinet playing and how to teach it this is the one you must have – Christopher Ball

Clarinet Professor (retired) Royal Academy of Music

“This book presents information in bite-sized snippets, employing a simple but effective vocabulary which embraces specialist and non-specialist students and teachers alike.

“Whether you are a specialist or non-specialist teacher, professional or amateur clarinettist…I firmly believe that you will be impressed by the clarity of the information.” Ronan Durnin (from a review for The Clarinet and Saxophone Society of Great Britain magazine – The Clarinet)
