New Etudes, Book 1
The first book in the New Etudes series begins with 20 small works that present a special technical aspect. Students feel a “relaxed freedom” when they realize the work is focused on exploration rather than performance. The specific goals are listed under each title and include: bouncing both hands with a loose wrist; right hand broken chords; three note slurs; left-hand crossovers and many more. These original etudes range from eight measures to two pages, include imaginative art, and are sure to develop artistic playing.
