Custom Made Music
6 Works for Bb Clarinet
SIX WORKS FOR Bb CLARINET is the third book in the CUSTOM MADE MUSIC SERIES. Ms. Reynolds composed this collection for intermediate to early advanced clarinet students with consultation from San Francisco Conservatory of Music clarinet faculty Jeffrey Anderle. The two unaccompanied solos, two works for clarinet with piano, and two clarinet duets fill a niche in educational clarinet repertoire, developed to target key technique challenges perfect for the middle-to-high school student. The edition includes a piano partbook and a companion CD, recorded by Jeffrey Anderle, that features tracks for the student to play along with while learning individual parts.
“My students have enjoyed playing the Custom Made Music Book for clarinet by Belinda Reynolds. I have also enjoyed playing the duets with them in their lessons. The complex rhythms make it challenging but fun! I highly recommend it to all my colleagues and students.” – Lyneé Funkhouser, clarinetist and teacher, San Francisco, CA
“I love this music. Not too technically demanding but it demands that the student actively and independently count and subdivide while having a great time.” – from Steven Klimowski, Affiliate Artist, University of Vermont
“The book provides a tuneful method that introduces students to rhythmic complexity, changing meters, and modern ensemble playing in a style of writing that is popular in today’s classical music. It is rare to find quality modern repertoire that can be played by a young advancing student. I wish I had something like this when I was starting out.” – Jason Gresl, clarinetist and faculty, Andrews University and member of Claricello
