...pupils can once again explore the plethora of technical conundrums with these enjoyable, melodious and, always short studies. No example is longer than 32 bars and the majority are a mere eight bars in length. They are a pleasurable way of developing even fingers in chord laying, double thirds, Alberti bass, arpeggios, scales, acciaccaturas, trills, repeated notes, shared melodies between hands and may more technical tricks. They are an absolute `must' for enthusiastic Intermediate students who will be able to work at many of these studies, and for advanced students to use as daily exercises.
