As a beginning clarinet player, it is nice to have some original and good-sounding pieces of music at your disposal, that not only help you practice your technique, but already very soon make it possible to show off the sweet sound of your clarinet to your sympathetic audience.
Belgian composer Willy Van Dorsselaer wrote a great deal of clarinet music for starters. His compositions also feature on the exam list of many clarinet teachers for their young students.
