Book 2 continues towards the development of a healthy, natural, and effective technique. Reinforcing concepts such as: five-finger patterns; staccato; two-part counterpoint; and then introducing new concepts such as: three-note slurs; blocked and broken intervals; and playing chords and inversions, will hone students' technical abilities with a focused and organized approach. Each book is divided into units, and each unit focuses on one technical concept utilizing imagery to help students understand the gesture needed to produce the correct technique.

Succeeding with the Masters is a series dedicated to the authentic keyboard works of the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Twentieth-Century masters.
This series provides a complete and easily accessible method for learning and performing the works of the masters. Each book presents the works in historical perspective for the student, and provides the means and the motivation to play these pieces in the correct stylistic, musical, and technical manner.
