ABRSM Clarinet 2018–20211
The Grade By Grade series draws on the rich and varied Boosey & Hawkes catalogue of classical, contemporary and educational repertoire, highlighting composers including Serge Prokofieff, Dmitri Shostakovich, Karl Jenkins, Carol Barratt and Christopher Norton, alongside arrangements of traditional music from around the world by Peter Wastall, Vera Gray and others.

Carefully selected by Janet Way, this practical anthology provides the complete repertoire resource for the aspiring Grade 1 clarinettist and creates the perfect package for teaching, exam preparation and performance.

Each volume contains:

• 19 pieces & short studies, each complemented by a useful practice and performance tip
• grade-appropriate scales and arpeggios linked to the repertoire through bespoke text and exercises
• brand new sight-reading activities
• newly-commissioned aural awareness tasks
• a piano accompaniment booklet

Packaged with a CD of full performance demonstrations, piano backing tracks, and grade-appropriate aural awareness resources.


"As a teacher I was looking forward to using this book with some pupils, particularly because it seemed like a great resource in preparation for the ABRSM grade 1 exam.
I have found the flute book in the same series to be excellent, and was confident in recommending the clarinet book.
Most of the pieces, studies and aural awareness tests are great.
However, unfortunately, this book includes material unsuitable for a player working towards grade 1.
The second piece in the book includes the note C using the register key, which is beyond a grade 1 pupil's ability.
The 'scale spot' sections featuring F major and G major are NOT 'grade appropriate' as described on the back cover, because they are an octave higher than the scale range required for grade 1."
