Anderson: Concepts for the Clarinet Teacher, 5th Edition
Code: JP7001 ISMN: 979-0-3019-0111-3
This clarinet method is by John Anderson, Professor of
Clarinet at the University of Minnesota from 1976-2009.
The method was written specifically for college music
education majors studying the clarinet as a secondary
instrument, but it also can serve as a basic reference for teachers since the focus is on the "concepts" of clarinet
playing and teaching. Musical exercises were composed at
an adult level to challenge the student who already
performed on another instrument. Appropriate orchestral
and solo excerpts are included as well as duets
emphasizing a particular technique. The text discusses
"how" to teach a technique and includes when to use
alternate fingerings. The book is appropriate for either
class or private study with students who have little or
no background in clarinet.
