Six Steps to Success is designed for the intermediate student after they have progressed past beginning instructional books. This volume contains forty etudes that address the musical abilities of developing students in six areas of playing: warm-up, legato, articulation, scales and compound meter. After an initial warm-up section, there are five etudes for each of the eight major keys that intermediate students need to master. These will help students take the next necessary steps, leading to more advanced standard pedagogical methods and etudes. Each etude is engraved on one page for ease of reading, and a complete fingering chart is included. This is an excellent new addition to the repertoire of the intermediate student and can be used by students alone, or with the guidance of a private teacher. It would also be a great resources for use as audition material for honor bands.
After a student has completed the first year or two of study on an instrument, it is time to seek individualized instruction specific to developing their skills past the basic level. There is an abundance of material written for the instruction of the beginning student and for the more advance student, but much less in the middle levels. Etudes have been the foundation of musical instruction for hundreds of years. This book focuses on presenting etudes on the intermediate level. It is hoped that after the successful completion of this material, the student will improve their skills to the point where they can then move up to the standard pedagogical repertoire. The book is organized first by keys. It covers the first eight essential keys the intermediate student will need to know. The keys are presented in an order from most common to less common for the intermediate student. But it is not necessary that the student or a student with a private teacher use the book in order. Many will find it more beneficial to jump around from key to key, and that is a perfectly acceptable way to use this material. Besides keys, the book presents five different etudes for each key, one for improving legato playing, one for improving articulation, one for improving rhythm reading, one for improving technique through scale exercises, and finally one that combines many of the aspects of the other four steps but in a compound meter. If the student can master each of the six steps, they will improve greatly in their skills, performance quality and musicianship.
