'The original edition was good; this one is excellent. The carefully graded material is presented in an easy, sound and methodical manner, which, together with its amusing and telling illustrations, can hardly fail to grip the attention and interest of the student ... This ... makes it one of the most worthwhile clarinet tutors I have met. The adult beginner, as well as the 10 to 12 year olds for whom the book is intended, would gain much from it.'
