Friday Favorites: Articulation Exercises

A Kell a day keeps the doctor away…

Happy Friday!

Another week, another opportunity for me to share some of my favorite clarinet-related things!

This week, I’m sharing some of my favorite articulation exercises. Developing a polished articulation style (both quality and speed) is very important for clarinetists, and here are some of my favorite books to help you in this pursuit:

  • Reginald Kell 17 Staccato Studies (also Clarinet Staccato from the Beginning)
  • Gustave Langenus “Tonguing Study” from Book Three of Complete Method for the Clarinet (No. 11 – page 22)
  • Robert Stark Daily Staccato Exercises        
  • Randall Cunningham Tongue Twisters
  • Fernand Gillet Exercices Sur Les Gammes, Les Intervalles, et Le Staccato Pour Clarinette
  • Reiner Wehle Clarinet Fundamentals 1: Sound and Articulation
  • Avrahm Galper Tone, Technique, and Staccato
  • Allen Sigel Clarinet Articulation
