Big Book of Sight Reading Duets for Clarinet: 100 Sight Reading Challenges for You and a Friend
The Big Book of Sight Reading Duets for Clarinet: 100 Sight Reading Challenges for You and a Friend, based on duets by David Vining and edited by Andrew Seigel, is appropriate for high school through professional clarinet players.
The Big Book of Sight Reading Duets provides a fun and effective way to improve sight reading! The 100 duets are progressively arranged so every skill level is addressed, and there are a wide variety of styles, keys, time signatures, and other musical requirements for plenty of diversity.
The Big Book of Sight Reading Duets comes in flute, oboe, clarinet, and bassoon editions designed to coordinate with one another. If a clarinet player has the clarinet edition, for example, they can play along with an oboe player who has the oboe edition or a flute player with the flute edition.
Whether you play these duets with a friend or a teacher, sight reading with a partner provides an incentive for playing each duet without stopping because you don’t want to disappoint your partner. The Big Book of Sight Reading Duets also provides additional tips and advice for improvement to address a skill so important and lacking for many musicians.
“Trillpalooza,” “Wacky Waltz,” “Late for Rehearsal,” and “Rhythm Tornado” are just a few of the clever ditties found within, so stop dreading sight reading and learn the secrets to reading music accurately at first sight with The Big Book of Sight Reading Duets!
"These imaginative sets of duets are not your ho-hum duets. Evocative titles abound—somehow Twins really sound like twins—while other duets are instructive and informative. [The advanced duets] employ more difficult key signatures and less usual time signatures . . . and will be challenging and instructive for the more advanced performers. I heartily recommend these duets! They explore the clarinet duet from a different angle, engaging for both student and teacher alike." - Dr. Elsa Ludewig-Verdehr, Distinguished University Professor, Michigan State University; Member, Verdehr Trio
"Fun and Challenging! Seigel's editing of these clarinet duos are an upgrade to the existing repertoire (i.e. Voxman, Klose, Langenus, and etc...). I encourage all high school students to include these duos in their music libraries." - Dr. Miles M. Ishigaki, Professor of Music, California State University
"The Big Book of Sight Reading Duets for Clarinet: 100 Sight Reading Challenges for You and a Friend arranged and edited by Andrew Seigel is a wonderful addition to the clarinet repertoire. This book will have a permanent home on my music stand and in the teaching studio. What a great book!" - Richard Nunemaker, Clarinet, Houston Symphony (retired)
