This is what customers say:

Shirley Hartlett, retired Headmistress of Shenington School, Nr Banbury, England says:

"I get frustrated when I buy a book of clarinet music and find that I can only manage to play one or two pieces.  With Clarinet Tone-Ups I can play them all!" 

Stan Barrett, retired drama teacher and semi-pro clarinettist from Market Bosworth, England says:

"The 'Clarinet Tone-Ups' are a joy to use.  Not only do they take the tedium out of long-note practice, but they are also sprinkled with technical and interpretive challenges.  The writers know where we're likely to need help.  They isolate each problem and tell us, in straightforward language, what to do about it.  Excellent."

7 June 2004: Brad Bunnin, Berkeley, California

"I bought a copy of Clarinet Tone-Ups at Howarth's last month, while visiting my family in Britain. What a lovely way to improve tone and control! My teacher is also impressed."
