I am a band director and clarinet teacher in southeastern Louisiana, USA. A student of mine came across some of your beginner jazz clarinet duets and was trying to learn them off of the YouTube videos, showed me the video and I thought they were really cool. A lot of times, beginner duets are really lame and not very musical, and in my experience that goes doubly true for jazz duets. I went to your site and immediately bought all the clarinet duets. I got the advanced ones for myself, the intermediate for my few high school students, and the beginners for the junior high kids I teach during the day. Thank you so much for writing/sharing your music. After hearing so many really lame beginner level duets yours really are refreshing, they truly are good music that is fun to play.
Includes Memphis trio!
1. Bourbon Street is a lively blues in G with a classic blues introduction
2. Hobo in C explores the core major-minor sound that give the Blues so much flavour!
3. Ramblin, a riffy tune, with rolling jazz lower part
4. Delta Blues in F features a catchy bass line hook that is contagious!
5. Fats offers a slow moment of peace and tranquility!
6. Memphis a memorable shuffle bass accompaniment that has a rock 'n roll sound!
7. Jive Blues explores the world of difference between long and short quarter notes
8. Barrel House Blues is a querky blues with challenging to and fro parts- rather like a game of ping pong!
9. Memphis 'New Orleans' Trio (Bundled) - A trio version with Solo! and modulations.

The purchase experience went smoothly and the .pdf music booklet is high quality. These pieces are accessible for early players, yet give you just enough challenge with optional register changes and rhythms to for a player ready for a bit more. Nice resource!
I like the tunes and the fact that each tune (so far) includes some accidentals but not so many that it overwhelms a beginner. On the contrary, these jazzy little tunes encourage a way of internalizing the swing rhythm while learning some alternate fingerings plus different articulations. There is more in here than meets the eyes (and ears). Once I finish, I will move right to the intermediate. Given these are duets, it’s like getting twice as much bang for the buck.
Perfect for my daughter and her friend - both 3rd graders learning to play the clarinet via the school music program. Upon seeing the video of Delta Blues on youtube, my daughter decided to learn it. Purchasing the music was easy and it was great to have the PDF immediately. Her clarinet teacher really likes the book as well. Well done!
Diese Musik ist mit Schülern sehr sehr gut zu erarbeiten.
Excellent! Really easy and immediate download was great
