These stimulating new pieces from James Rae, with a few added well-known favourites, will inspire the younger clarinet beginner. They are all in a comfortable register and only simple rhythms and small intervals are used. New notes are gradually introduced in the same order as they appear in most standard tutors. Even at this early stage different musical styles are explored and pupils will also enjoy the fun illustrations which can be downloaded for free for colouring in.

(...) This book is ideal for the young clarinettist. It is beautifully illustrated, including free downloads of illustrations in case your students want to colour them in. With recognisable melodies alongside some originals, this is a valuable addition to the beginner’s repertoire. Highly recommended.

Een leuk boek met 18 liedjes voor de beginnende klarinettist, gecomponeerd en gearrangeerd door James Rae (1957). (…) De jonge klarinettist zal met deze korte, frisse liedjes zeker de harten van het publiek veroveren! (…) Prima te gebruiken voor korte solistische optredens in je allereerste lesjaar.
