The excerpts shown by this coverage are a fraction of the materials introduced in Session 1 and a small portion of Ray's clever cartoon about the problems of young clarinet players.

Other portions of the DVD include development of Session 1 techniques for the director as well as special sessions for the students and ready-to-print PDFs of Ray's teaching tools.
