ISBN 0634057715. 9x12 inches.

The 29 etudes in this book are taken from Carl Czerny's The Little Pianist, Opus 823. These engaging etudes are comparable to their famous “older brothers,” the studies found in The Art of Finger Dexterity, but are written for students at an earlier stage of study. They encompass a wealth of technical and music instruction from this master teacher of the Classical period, indeed, the world's first great piano pedagogue. The etudes focus on developing both technical and music skills, providing an excellent stylistic and technical resource for the intermediate pianist. Preceding each etude or group of etudes is a worksheet divided into three sections: Practice Tips, Quick Quiz and Creative Corner. These worksheets help students focus on the important technical features in each etude, apply practical music theory to their study of the music, and vary the etudes in creative ways. Czerny – Selections from The Little Pianist, Opus 823 is available in book/CD format (00296363) or as a book alone (00296364). A separate General MIDI accompaniment disk is also available (00296365). CD and GM accompaniments were created by Phillip Keveren.

    I was shocked when a student brought this to her lesson when I had assigned op. 823. This is an excuse to profit from Czerny's excellent method by "modernizing it." The title "Selections from the Little Pianist" is fair warning, that this a an exploitative and clueless product of...

    canny editors and a willingness of the publishers to use a new "hook" to sell this originally brilliant method for teaching articulation techniques and theory in a collection of short subjects. Be absolutely certain to obtain the original, complete and unadulterated edition.

    "An American In China & Older Beginner Pianist"
    Difficulty Level:
  • 2011-05-15 00:00:00.0 Czerny Selections from The Little Pianist Opus 823

    Perfect Book!!! This is the most concise, not too lengthy, very playable studies, very fun, practical, useful, has all the Etudes & Studies you'll ever need to get started into your first endevors with Carl Czerny! It only has 29 studies instead of 100 like Czerny's Opus 599 book...

    usually used. So, it's not as laborious as other Strudy Books, okay. I found this one book to be my most favorite to play everyday, I have time for 29 studies, and they're in my range: Beginner, progressing very slowly up to Intermediate. One can complete each day that cover all aspects of finger/hand/wrist/forarm development.

    Not a day without Czerny exercises. From early intermediate to early advanced levels, student will benefit from an outstanding compilation of piano etudes. Easy to follow from first to last page, or just select a few for every day technique practice and finger velocity development
