"The pattern of progress can be compared to an oncoming tide-wave after wave moves onward seemingly with the same upsurge, but once in a while, one of the waves reaches ahead of the others, and then seems to be followed by the others, until the same motion occurs anew. Progress always moves forward-it is never still. The minute one feels that a certain level has been achieved at that precise moment one stops progressing, unless one tries to reach a higher level still or else regression starts and the level goes down. Perfection does not exist, but the ambition to reach it makes for unending progress and self satisfaction." Bonade
These are the complete technical requirements for the exam; all scales and arpeggios and the chromatic scale. You can play along with it (using the PDF),and adjust the speed. To play along select transpose and major second, you can download it as a PDF (right click save as). Unless you have the habit of doing your scales every day you will NOT be able to play these from memory for the exam. As I always say scales for musicians are like pushups for the athlete. Your pieces are the most important part of the exam then your studies if you are not dedicated and take too long to get the pieces etc. down it will not leave time for scales so practice them from day 1. Make sure you have a copy of the RCM Syllabus and refer to it often to remind yourself of details like articulations scale speeds and ear training. It is your responsibility. If you are having a short 30 minute lesson instead of the hour I recommend for students taking an exam it is all the more critical that you be self motivated to practice and stay on top of exam requirements or you will forget. http://www.sibelius.com/products/scorch/index.html

Every clarinet is set up and play tested before sale, most stores do not do this. This clarinet has had some undercutting of higher tone holes and resetting of pad heights done for better pitch and tone.
The material, reverse taper barrel and design give this clarinet a more mature rich sound when compared to standard student clarinets costing hundreds more. I have played one in the orchestra for outdoor concerts.
