  • About the AuthorDavid Etheridge is David Ross Boyd Professor of Clarinet, Chair of the Woodwind Area, and a member of the Oklahoma Woodwind Quintet at the University of Oklahoma School of Music. He is also in demand as a recital-ist and clinician across the United States and Europe. Etheridge is a former member of the Oklahoma City Philharmonic, having performed with them as both Principal Clarinetist and as a member of the clarinet section. Prior to his 35-year tenure at the University of Oklahoma, he served on the faculty of the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, New York, for 9 years. He holds degrees from the University of Colorado and the Eastman School of Music, where he completed his Doctor of Musical Arts in clarinet performance as a student of Stanley Hasty. Etheridge serves regularly on the faculty of the International Clarinet Camp in Hungary. He is also the founder of the interna-tionally acclaimed University of Oklahoma Clarinet Symposium, which is now in its 35th year. His most recent publications include A Practical Approach to the Clarinet for Beginning Clarinetists, A Practical Approach to the Clarinet for Intermediate Clarinetists, the Revised Edition of a Practical Approach to the Clarinet for Advanced Clarinetists, and Mozarts Clarinet Concerto: The Performers View. In addition to his David Ross Boyd Distinguished Professorship, his awards include the Amoco Foundation Award for Good Teaching and the University of Oklahoma Regents Award for Superior Teaching.

  • DedicationTo my wonderful wife, Cheryl, the love of my life, for her steadfast support of my career over the years and countless hours of assistance on this book. Also, to my parents, Eileen Etheridge and Ellis Etheridge, for the sacrifi ces they made to make my fi rst clarinet lessons possible, and to my superb teachers, Jack Stevens, Richard Culver, Val P. Henrich, Jerry Neil Smith, and Stanley Hasty for instilling in me a love of teaching.

    Authors AcknowledgmentsThanks to acquisitions editor Michael Lewis, who chose me to author this book and ironed out all the preliminary details to make this book possible.

    Tim Gallan, my project editor, deserves a loud cheer for serving as a gifted and patient collaborator and editor shuffl ing chapters back and forth, shepherding the text and graphics through production, making sure any technical issues were properly resolved, and serving as the unoffi cial quality control manager. Christy Pingleton and Krista Hansing, copy editors, earn editor of the year awards for ferreting out my typos, misspellings, grammati-cal errors, and other language foe paws (or is it faux pas?), in addition to assisting Tim as reader advocate. I also tip my hat to the production crew for doing such an outstanding job of transforming an enormous hodgepodge of text, photos, music, and fi ngering charts into such an attractive bound book.

    I owe very special thanks to wizard wordsmith Joe Kraynak for asking ques-tions to clarify challenging concepts and helping me capture in written form how I actually teach clarinet to eager beginners. I could not have completed this project without his excellent collaboration.

    Also, many thanks to Carolyn Rossow for her superb photography; to Jessi Rodgriquez for her excellent modeling: to Patrick Conlon for his terrifi c music copying; to Leon Smith for his patience and expertise in engineering and recording the CD; to Matt Stock, Christina Giacona, Dr. Brad Benson, and Annette Luyben for their research assistance; to Jim and Kyle Pyne for their assistance with mouthpiece information; and to Glenn Kantor, Dr. Julianne Kirk, and Dr. Michael Raiber for carefully proofreading the manuscript and offering valuable input of their own.
