Printouts – Scales, Arpeggios, and Thirds

I really want everyone to print these, scribble fingerings on them and learn them well. Knowing these will help a lot in anything you play.

Necessary Scales, Arpeggios and Thirds Sheets

1) Major scales, two octaves, with accidentals (sharps or flats) written in  – http://clarinet-space.skyleapmusic.com/clarinet-scales-and-technique-PDFs/2OctMajorSclsClarinetAccidentals.pdf

( this is the same thing, but with key signatures. http://www.clarinet-now.com/support-files/clarinet-major-scales.pdf )

2) Major scale thirds, one octave, with key signatures – http://taylorbands.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Scales-in-Thirds-Clarinet.pdf

3) Major arpeggios, two octaves, with key signatures – http://clarinet-space.skyleapmusic.com/clarinet-scales-and-technique-PDFs/2OctMajorArpegClarinet.pdf

4) Minor arpeggios, two octaves, with key signatures – http://clarinet-space.skyleapmusic.com/clarinet-scales-and-technique-PDFs/2OctMinorArpegClarinet.pdf

5) Chromatic Scale – this is a concise sheet with C, F, Bb, Eb, G, D, A Major and a chromatic scale on the bottom. http://www.alvinisd.net/cms/lib03/TX01001897/Centricity/Domain/1557/RB%20Scales%20Clarinet.pdf

Alternative Sheets

1) Major Scales in order (ie. E, F, Gb, G, etc.). Some of them go three octaves – http://www.alvinisd.net/cms/lib03/TX01001897/Centricity/Domain/1557/NRJH%20Clarinet%20Scales.pdf

2) Major Scales, one octave, then more octaves, with arpeggios and thirds. Everything’s written out clearly, with some fingerings. – http://www.mpsaz.org/poston/staff/jabock/resources/scales/files/clarinet_scales-2.pdf

If you want to find more

I found all of these by searching google. Here are some of the sites that I found and took links from.

1) http://www.clarinet-now.com/clarinet-scales.html – It’s fun to read and explains why you should practice scales from a perspective that feels kind of familiar.

2)  http://clarinet-space.skyleapmusic.com/clarinet-scales-and-technical-exercises.html  . If you want more chromatic scale practice, they have a nice worksheet.

3) http://www.alvinisd.net/Page/5223 – beware : The thirds sheet shows the concert key instead of the key you are playing on clarinet. If you use that, cross out what it says and write the actual key.
