When pupils are assigned good-quality etudes, their technique improves dramatically. Book 2 in this series features late elementary piano etudes by such noted composers as Czerny, Gurlitt, Kohler, Loschnorn, Rebikov and Schytte. The compilation concentrates on level-appropriate essentials such as shaping phrases with two and three voices, playing a left hand melody with right hand chords, extended hand positions, melodic octaves, Alberti bass, descending scales and more. Each etude is prefaced with concise composer facts and helpful practice advice.
