    Very little is known about Fritz Kroepsch (Kröpsch); Pamela Weston notes in her book More Clarinet Virtuosi of the Past that he studied at the Vienna Conservatory from 1824 to 1826.  Book 3 (#350–390) of the 416 Progressive Studies contains 3 different exercises, each written in all 12 major keys (plus a 13th enharmonic equivalent of G♭). The first (#1–13) is 16 measures of scales which pass through a harmonic progression (I–vi–IV–I) with varying articulation and, in a few instances, chromaticism and small intervallic breaks. The second (#14–26) is 18 measures of ascending scales with descending broken arpeggios which pass through a harmonic progression (I–vi–IV–ii–I) with varying articulation, scales in thirds, larger intervallic jumps, and chromaticism. The third (#27–39) is 24 measures of modulating broken arpeggios. The last page is an extra exercise (#40) of arpeggios modulating through all keys.

    Quick facts
    Length: each exercise = about 1/2 page
    Range: highest pitch = written A♭6
    Key signature: no ♯/♭, 1♯, 2♯, 3♯, 4♯, 5♯, 6♯, 1♭, 2♭, 3♭, 4♭, 5♭, 6♭
    Time signature: 4/4

    Although each individual exercise is longer than those in Books 1 and 2, the technical demands here are confined to the most traditional of scale and chord patterns. Regular use of the altissimo, as high as an A♭6, means that these are best suited for an advancing intermediate clarinettist. The only time signature used is 4/4.
