The COVID-19 pandemic has taken its toll on all of us in many different ways. One of the most common refrains I’m hearing and seeing from so many musicians is that their practicing schedules are completely out of whack.
That’s why I’ve created my Back to Basics Boot Camp.
I developed this boot camp to help clarinetists get back in the swing of things in the practice room. During this 15-day boot camp, you’ll rebuild your embouchure and physical endurance, regain technical abilities including articulation, and improve your musicality and phrasing. This boot camp is completely free, and I hope it’s the impetus many musicians need to get back in the practice room.
Here are the required books and music for the boot camp:
- Paul Jeanjean Vade-Mecum
- Carl Baermann Op. 63, Division III (scales)
- Cyrille Rose 32 Études for Clarinet
- long tone exercises of your choice
As with all of my other boot camps, you can personalize this practice plan to fit your own unique goals and schedule. You can begin this 15-day plan any time you’re ready. I have created this boot camp with intermediate to advanced clarinetists in mind, but it can be modified to help clarinetists of all ages and ability levels.
