Clarinet Method Book

Teaching Woodwinds: A Guide for Students and Teachers

A comprehensive resource perfectly suited for university woodwind technique classes, band directors needing woodwind details, or anyone looking for in-depth information on how to play flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, or saxophone.

Teaching Woodwinds is the only resource of its kind: a book and a website. The book contains playing exercises for each instrument, group exercises in score form, and fingering and trill charts. The website contains information about how to play each instrument including sub-chapters on getting started, technique, intonation, tone and much more, and offers over 300 full color images, 130 videos, audio files, PDF downloads, PowerPoint/Keynote quizzes, and hundreds of links.

Designed to be a lifelong resource, the platform of a book and website has provided the authors with a rich palette with which to deliver the content with clarity and precision. This format serves as an effective woodwind methods curriculum, and will continue to be a valuable resource for music educators long after graduation.

"What differentiates this book from the others is that it is linked to a very helpful, practical and huge website that includes videos, extra tips and fingerings, audio clips, images, slideshows, exercises, self quizzes, links and PDF downloads.”
