A different approach to scales

This exercise book has been written for advanced students and proficient clarinettists.
It aims to offer a different and less traditional approach to the practice of scales.
During his compelling lessons, my mentor Richard Vieille would enjoy using the Latin phrase "Bis idem repetita non placent" (“That which is twice repeated pleases not”).
And in truth this phrase reflects well the way we play scales, very often as a matter of routine.
“A different approach to scales” will help acquire alternative reading habits and possibly less expected fingerings while still playing the same intervals.

It is organised in four parts:
- Conjunct motion
- Various chords
- Whole-tone scales
- Chromaticism including a few excerpts
Do we need to recall what makes for best practice? regular finger work, absolute legato,
a steady tempo, homogeneous sound when changing register and of course intonation and
purity of sound…

I hope this anti-routine exercise book will help you polish your technical studies along with:
- Atout gammes Vol. 1 "Les gammes pour tous" (avec doigtés)
- Atout gammes Vol. 2 "Tous les chromatismes"
- 38 exercices de chauffe pour la transposition
- 7 exercices journaliers
