  • April 30, 2011 excellent teaching tool

    i bought essential elements intermediate technique in grade 3 and learned most of my fingerings and shiftings from it. my teacher replaced his teaching book with mine because he noted the rapid improvement i showed with it. and now in grade 5 i am sure that essential elements advanced technique...

    is going to help a lot. but note that this should be actually "intermediate technique part 2" and not really "advanced" because it does not cover thumb position, just gives a cursory look at thumb position.
