 CLARINET CLASS

Mar 3, 2024

Excellent work, everyone!

 

ASSIGNMENTS:

1) Practice Standard of Excellence book p. 18-19

2) Practice all of p. 2 of the printed sheet: Diatonic Bits

3) Practice Ode To Joy from the print out I gave you

IMPORTANT: It is best to use HEADPHONES when you play along with recordings, otherwise it is too difficult to hear the recorded music over your own clarinet playing.

Check out this cool new jazz playlist!!!!
