Original Studies by: Kristin Nakagawa (1989- )
Individual part. 3 pages.
These are the 1st movement studies of the Saint-Saens Clarinet Sonata. These studies were designed for the high school clarinet student preparing for the 2020-21 HS California All-State Auditions.
Each drill is designed to target a common clarinet issue that a player may encounter when working on the solo part. Instructions for how and why to practice each drill are included. The drill is then followed by the actual passage so that the player can immediately see and apply the concept to the solo piece.
