Customer Rating:   3 Reviews Write a Review


Czerny-Schaum, Book 1 composed by Carl Czerny (1791-1857). Arranged by John W. Schaum. For Piano. Masterworks; Piano - Schaum Method Supplement; Piano Supplemental. Schaum Master Composer Series. Classical; Masterwork Arrangement; Romantic. Late Elementary. Book. 32 pages. Published by Schaum Publications, Inc. (AP.EL00285A).

ISBN 0757980619. Classical; Masterwork Arrangement; Romantic.

Carl Czerny was a prolific composer who wrote approximately 1,000 published works. As a pupil of Beethoven and the teacher of Franz Liszt, he was a transmitter of ideas from one great master to another. His many collections of exercises and studies range from the easy and progressive to the virtuoso. The Czerny-Schaum edition is based on selections from Op. 599, Op. 139, Op. 821, Op. 718, Op. 636, and Op. 261. The objective is to bring together, in condensed form, excerpts that stress many varieties of technical problems. Special emphasis is placed on equal development of both hands. The technical points are equally divided between the right and the left hands. The exercises are purposely left brief, thereby avoiding stiffness and tension. Using the Czerny-Schaum exercises will improve piano technic when used in conjunction with a program of balanced repertoire.

  • September 03, 2012 Excellent for learning new techniques

    I think the exercises in this book are appropriate for a beginner to learn new techniques. Most of the exercises are half a page, so not intimidating and a student doesn't feel overwhelmed by them. I gave one of these books to a beginning student and she seemed to...

    feel like the passages I gave her were doable.

    Early intermediate
  • June 06, 2012 core curriculum

    Here Schaum improves upon Czerny at least for early grades, by selecting for brevity and adding many left-hand etudes which mirror those for right hand. An accessible way to help students make progress to the intermediate levels - the exercises get tough when played fast! Mostly "white" keys but still...

    a valuable collection.
