Technique 3 continues and expands on the technical and artistic tools learned in Technique books 1A, 1B, 2A, and 2B. The four new Technique Tools introduced are: changing fingers on repeated notes, double-note shifts, contracting the hand, and ovals. Artistic Etudes showcase a student's technique in an expressive musical setting, and Hands-Together Workshops focus on developing the skills necessary for coordinating hands-together playing. Masterwork Etudes provide training to play standard masterworks. Each page in the Technique Book correlates with a specific page in the Lesson Book.
