Carl Czerny's Selected Studies For The Piano are excellent for helping pianists to develop and secure technique. Book one is divided into two parts:
Part one comprises one hundred short studies for upper elementary and lower middle grades, focusing on velocity and special studies for expression, rhythm and polyphony.
Part two comprises seventy studies for lower middle and middle grades, focusing on velocity and special studies for expression, rhythm, polyphony and octave-playing. A supplementary eight octave studies are included at the end of this section.
