Jazz clarinet for a beginner?    10:17 on Thursday, August 14, 2014

Hello all,

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.

Thanks in advance,
