The carols in the duet book are written specifically for the clarinet with beginner and intermediate students in mind, and they progress in terms of difficulty. The first ten songs are all in the lower register. The next fifteen songs are in both the upper and lower registers.

The Christmas Clarinet Duet Book is unique in that there are at least two versions of every carol in the book. The first version of each song has the melody entirely in the top line of the clarinet parts. These arrangements are good for featuring students playing along with their teachers.

In the second version of each song, the melody is traded back and forth between the two clarinet parts. These arrangements work well for two students playing together, since both clarinetists will have an opportunity to play the melody. They can be used as an educational tool to help students identify when they are playing the melody and when they are playing the accompanying harmony part.

At the end of the book there are four extra carols for more advanced players: two more arrangements of Jingle Bells, and one each of O Christmas Tree and Silent Night.

The book has a total of 55 arrangements of the carols and is 63 pages.

If you only want one or two of the duets but not the entire book, you can purchase the digital versions individually from Lulu for only $1 per carol. Follow each link below to Lulu’s site to order them.

The book includes the following songs (listed alphabetically). Also, the column on the right indicates whether the duet is in the lower register or both the lower and upper registers. There are at least two versions of every duet in the book -- one with the melody played entirely in the top part and one with the melody moving back and forth between the two parts. Here is more information on the duet book.
