Technique 2B continues and expands on the technical and artistic tools learned in Technique books 1A, 1B, and 2A. The seven new Technique Tools introduced are: three-note slurs, preparing quickly for hand crossings, feel the downbeat, finger stretches, legato pedal, finger 1 under finger 3, and finger 3 over finger 1. 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.
