Exercises are sequenced so that in each successive exercise, the fingers are rested from the fatigue caused by the previous one.

He recommends that a student have at least one year of experience before starting this book.

  • December 16, 2011 Excellent Product, but shipping mishap

    I absolutely love Alfred additions. they are attractive, easy to read, and up to date. I recommend getting smythe bound because you can take it to Kinko's and get a beautiful spiral put in it for around $5 along with a plastic cover sheet to product your product. Definitively...

    go with Alfred. Best name in music if you ask me.

  • October 01, 2009 Finally Get Some Serious Piano Chops

    I've had this book since 1995,when I was in high school.It really helped me to get in shape enough to pass out of piano class in college and study piano as a elective,my technique was so good.However,I got lazy piano-wise,and stopped playing...

    them.Coming back to the piano,they're good to build,rebuild,and clean up your technique.Just use a little judgement on how many times to do the exercises.Overall,a great technical exercise book to have.
