Journeys By Clarinet is a collection of short unaccompanied pieces, written to provide students with a steady progression through their studies.
They include as many aspects of musicianship as possible within each piece: dynamics, articulation, breath management phrasing etc., all of which should be carefully thought about and applied.
There is also a large element of performance and interpretation in these pieces, giving the player an opportunity to tell a story, or set a mood, rather than being just a technical exercise.
Whatever level you have achieved on your clarinet, there will be something for you in this selection of pieces, and I hope you enjoy playing them.
I am very indebted to Maestro Steve Dummer for his guidance in the writing and preparation of these pieces.
You can also download the individual pieces for £1.49 to £1.79 each.
