The Technic is Fun series offers piano students a series of graded studies for the development of technic, style, and musicianship. These studies reinforce the technical requirements found in method books and in standard piano repertory. The etudes found in this series not only build technic and musicality but have been carefully selected to provide refreshing recital repertoire as well as to develop a strong musical and technical foundation.

  • April 27, 2011 Good supplementary material

    I use this book as a supplement for my students. It is much better than other technic books I've seen.

  • December 05, 2007 Easy to Understand

    My son needed this book for his piano lessons and it is really good for beginners. The songs are easy for him to pick up and this is a new copy of an older book. The whole Technic is Fun series are really good.

    Difficulty Level:
  • March 09, 2007 Tech. is Fun, a Pedagogical Tool!

    I use this to enhance the technique of my students. They don't particularly like it, but for my studio, it is a "must do."
