Product Information

First Steps Clarinet is an exciting collaboration between Rob Hughes (sponsored D'Addario Jazz artist), and Paul Harvey (composer and musician).

The book moves at a very steady pace; introducing new ideas gradually, enabling you to create a strong secure foundation for your musical journey. The first piece for example only uses two notes (D, and C) and crotchet notes. Later on additional notes, staccato, legato, tied, and dotted notes are introduced. 

First Steps is aimed at brand new players up to grade 1 level, however by using the 'Jam Notes' feature the book has a far longer shelf life as it were.  For each piece there is a Jam Notes box (a musical paint pallete as it were) to encourage students to listen, create, and free style their own music, let their hair down and escape the hard slog of reading the music.

First Steps is invaluable for maintaining motivation in the early months, plus encouraging learning and creativity through onther means of simply reading the notation.

Included is a basic finger/note chart*, basic theory guide page, and a 'How to use the Jam Notes' page (there is also a YouTube video being planned very shortly with extended tutorials on 'how to'). The book is comprised of; Clarinet part, piano accompaniment part, and CD featuring full demo, and backing tracks.
