In this challenging new set of studies, “18 Concert Etudes” for solo clarinet, James Rae aims to help develop good technique and to nurture musicianship from grade 6 through to college level.
As might be expected from James Rae, there are swing, funk and jazz etudes but other musical styles, right back to the baroque period, are not neglected. Not only can the serious clarinet student use them for warm-ups and practice but they are also quite suitable to be programmed as concert pieces in their own right, alongside accompanied works of all styles.

18 Concert Etudes overlap and progress from James’ “12 Modern Etudes” (UE18790). If you liked those, you’ll like these!


I highly recommend this one if you are looking for a variety of pieces that are interesting and challenging!
The Clarinet, June 2018 (Robert Chesebro)

The classical-based studies are melodically interesting and ‘Vivo’ and ‘Veloce’ especially are complex enough to make this book worth buying. I have no hesitation recommending it.
Music Teacher Magazine, February 2018 (Paul Saunders)

Many of the studies are typical of the standard that would be expected to be found at Grade 8+ level, and are worthy of study by the serious clarinettist.
