Product Details


Etudes are musical compositions that focus on improving technique. Book 1 in this series features high quality elementary piano etudes by famous pianist-teachers in a variety of styles. Each etude is prefaced with useful composer facts and practice advice. Technical study at the elementary level is characterized by playing in parallel motion and contrary motion in five-finger patterns, simple hands-together coordination, two-note slurs, three-note slurs, basic articulations (staccato, legato, repeated notes), broken chords, and more.
