Overview

It takes considerable patience, hard work, and perseverance to achieve mastery on a musical instrument. Proper guidance is critical to success in music, and part of that guidance includes finding resources that provide up-to-date strategies for reaching your professional goals. More Clarinet Secrets: 100 Quick Tips for the Advanced Clarinetist does just that, revealing secrets of the trade that can increase your chances of thriving as a clarinetist and musical professional.

A sequel to Michele Gingras's highly praised first book, Clarinet Secrets: 52 Performance Strategies for the Advanced Clarinetist, this new book is a treasure trove of completely new information on how to turn clarinetists into informed musicians, offering them the tools they need to compete in the music world. Topics discussed include technique, tone and intonation, musicianship, reeds and equipment, repertoire, musicians' health, and the music profession. In addition, Gingras supplies extra tips on such matters as college auditions, website design, and self-marketing.

The pedagogical ideas gathered in this book are the result of Gingras's more than 25 years of hands-on experience spent in the clarinet studio working with students. Advanced high school clarinetists, college-level clarinetists, and seasoned professionals will all find More Clarinet Secrets a valuable read.

Editorial Reviews

The Clarinet
This new book by Michele Gingras is a veritable feast of clarinet-related information....Gingras is a 21st-century clarinet educator of the highest order. She compiles and collates information from a wide range of sources and encourages us to be creatively divergent in our thinking and approach to playing and teaching the clarinet....Highly recommended.
Music Reference Services Quarterly
More Clarinet Secrets appears, at first glance, to be a straightforward follow-up to Clarinet Secrets, but it is more than that: In its emphasis on practical advice for the more prosaic daily challenges that clarinetists face, it is a very different book—and arguably a superior one. ... It is also a denser and more granular work. . . . As clarinetist Howard Klug mentions in his introduction, More Clarinet Secrets can be opened at random for 'instant gratification and motivation' (p. ix). There is not a single wasted word or self-indulgent digression to be found here. The sheer quantity of information in this slender volume is astounding. . . . Gingras’s advice is often simple yet strikingly original. ... Although there are countless pedagogical works on the clarinet, many written by acknowledged masters of the instrument, there is nothing that matches the sheer scope and utility of More Clarinet Secrets. Every music librarian would be well-advised to acquire a copy—perhaps even two or three.
