I play clarinet, have been for almost 4 years now. I'm did my grade 3 last year (2% of a distinction, so close!) and now I'm a bit stuck. Doing my leaving cert, haven't attended clarinet lessons in a few months. I am going to go back to them during the summer but then I am off to Galway for university.
Anyway, I would like to try for a grade 5 now and I was wondering if any one has any advice for preparing for grades on your own, what sheet music should I look for, can you buy books specifically for doing grades?
Also, I'm looking at doing international jazz grades and if anyone knows anything about them it'd be a great help.
