In the Introduction Roger Purcell says "Scaling the Heights is a collection of original, solo study pieces progressing in difficulty from Grade 1 to Grade 8, with some extra tough ones thrown in for the seriously determined! The book includes helpful information to enable the student to gain maximum benefit from practising these pieces.

As versatility is now expected of the modern clarinettist, the styles within vary, and should be interpreted accordingly. However, many of the studies are in 'swing' style, as the musical form lends itself to some interesting rhythms, and is fun to play."
