This is a sound book for the very beginner, as it progresses through how to assemble the instrument, create the correct embouchure and achieve the upper register, alongside the theory of written music. However, it remains at a basic stage for much of the book and does not "stretch" the pupil with potential, or inspire the reluctant learner! This is excellent as a start, but most players will soon be looking for something a bit more "fun" to play.

I started off learning the clarinet using the "Tune a Day" series of books about 30 years ago! Now my daughter has started to learn the flute and her teacher recommended this book. He deliberately recommended this version rather than the "new-look" Tune a Day books.
The book seems a good introduction for a beginner, gradually introducing new notes and fingering and simple tunes are introduced early on so the learner will quickly progress onto tunes they recognise.

I purchased this because the tune a day books are well written and a trusted series
