I've recently decided to take up the clarinet. I'm an avid jazz drummer and guitarist and have been playing both for around fifteen years, but the time has come for a new challenge! Although I'm hoping to teach myself as much as is possible, I intend to take a few occasional lessons to make sure I don't fall into to many bad habits.
What I'd like to find out is whether or not there are any decent elementary clarinet books with a jazz focus. I've got my hands on a copy of the Rubank Elementary Method, but it would be great to get hold of something more genre-specific, not least from the point of view of keeping myself motivated! If anyone has any recommendations, I'd be extremely grateful.
