About the Author:

Brent Coppenbarger is professor of Music at the Cline School of Music at North Greenville University in Tigerville, South Carolina, where he has taught woodwinds since 1995. He is the author of Music Theory Secrets, 94 Strategies for the Starting Musician, and his articles have appeared in The Clarinet, NACWI Journal, and The Instrumentalist.

Review:

As a high school band director for thirty-six years a constant concern with our Symphonic Band was to maintain proper intonation and tone quality with our woodwind section and more especially the clarinets. Dr. Coppenbarger has written a very concise method for solving those sticky problems of intonation that plague our bands in his Fine tuning the Clarinet Section: A Handbook for the Band Director. This handbook covers topics from embouchure development to proper preparation for solo performance. You will find his handbook a valuable resource to improve the sound of your ensemble. This is now my go to guide for my clarinet section. (C. Phillip McIntyre, former director of bands, James F. Byrnes High School, past-president of SCBDA and SCMEA and Hall of Fame at both SCBDA and SCMEA, director of athletic bands and Cline School of Music recruiter, North Greenville University)

I was very impressed with Dr. Coppenbarger's new book, Fine Tuning the Clarinet Section. Early in the text, he states that it is a daunting task for a band director to know all of the nuances for teaching every instrument. In this way, I think that this text does an outstanding job of giving the non-clarinetist director helpful teaching hints for improving the quality of his clarinet section. What is most helpful is that there are specific problem areas that are unique to playing the clarinet that are targeted and given specific teaching techniques to address these issues. I was particularly impressed with the chapters on improving articulation and intonation within the section. This text will certainly become an invaluable resource for both the novice teacher and the experienced music educator. (Leslie W. Hicken, director of bands, professor of music education, Furman University)

Dr. Brent Coppenbarger has given both the band director and aspiring student a clear and concise guide to becoming proficient on the clarinet. His discussions on the woodwind section in particular makes "Fine Tuning the Clarinet Section" an invaluable resource. (Darian Washington, professor of brass and wind band conductor, North Greenville University)
