“This is an excellent course on core clarinet fundamentals that if you apply and practice will definitely increase your proficiency.”

    -Maria Gary

“I really enjoyed this course. Being self taught, I discovered a lot of new techniques and music terms. The explanations are excellent, the music passages chosen are great and encourages one to find the full scores! These passages are not too difficult for this level and the melodies are beautiful, giving the learner a feeling of confidence and motivation to master these pieces. Thanks again, looking forward to your next course!”
