Trips to Buffet in Florida


As a authorized Buffet dealer, I always want to present the very best products to my customers. To do this, I periodically visit Buffet Crampon in Florida to select the very best clarinets I can find. This takes time and costs money. Why do I do it? I do it to present the best quality I possibly can.

Cool Links:

 

Attend concerts of the Chicago Clarinet Ensemble. If you love great clarinet playing and exciting soloists. For more information, click on this link: Chicago Clarinet Ensemble

Bass clarinet players - if you don’t have the Michael Drapkin “Symphonic Repertoire for the Bass Clarinet”, Volumes One ,Two, Three and NOW the long awaited Volume 4, you are really missing out. I wish that these excerpt books had been available when I was on the audition circuit. Every serious bass clarinet player should have them: www.bassclarinet.net

 

If you want clarinet music, methods, recordings, and books, try Gary Van Cott first. He is a woodwind.org sponsor and performs a valuable service for the clarinet (and entire woodwind) community. He is always a pleasure to work with. I buy all my music from him. He’s just a great guy to do business with. Here is his website: http://www.vcisinc.com/
