Johann Friedrich Burgmuller (1806-1874) published several albums of piano studies that have become standard works. This collection consists entirely of 25 Progressive Pieces, Op. 100. Mr. Schaum has renamed some of the exercises with appealing titles and purposely abridged some of the exercises thereby avoiding stiffness and tension. Using the Burgmuller-Schaum exercises will improve piano technic when used in conjunction with a program of balanced piano repertoire. Also available: Bach-Schaum * Chopin-Schaum * Czerny-Schaum * Hanon-Schaum * Mozart-Schaum.
