The early elementary level of Expressive Etudes includes 15 etudes by 10 composers which can be introduced with the second level of any piano method. The etudes in this collection are arranged in an approximate order of difficulty. Each one is short and focuses on a single musical element of a specific technical challenge. A brief biography of each composer can be found at the end of the book for further exploration. Also makes a great musical resource for older beginners and adults who need additional reinforcement in technique.
