Rob Patterson's edition of The Art of Chunking is a welcome addition to the clarinet pedagogy literature. As an orchestral musician with a constant stream of new music to learn, I find the book invaluable in providing techniques to master complicated passages quickly. It is also full of useful technical advice for intermediate and advanced students, all from a perspective seeking to serve the music. I highly recommend the book to students and professionals alike!
