This teaching piece has no dynamic markings which does not mean that dynamics are not important. Rather, it is intentionally left up to the teacher to explore dynamics along with the student. The title "Etude" could (should!) be replaced with a more imaginative, descriptive title - another opportunity for the teacher to engage the student's imagination and musical thinking. Found throughout the etude are the following opportunities to work on technical skills: • broken thirds, moving step-wise up or down, such as are found in Clementi Op. 36 No 1, to work on wrist rotation • staccato or tenuto longer note values in one hand against legato shorter note values in the other, a common feature in baroque piano music • three-note gestures, always in the right hand, all but one with fingers 1-2-3, to work on drop-and-lift gestures Additionally, the lyrical middle section requires a more expressive touch, and horizontal thinking to keep the melody moving forward.
