Code: JP7065 ISMN: 979-0-3019-0534-0
One of the most important skills to master as a modern-day
musician is to create a clean and seamless technique. This
collection of 36 exercises and original compositions,
each transposed to several different keys,
focuses on a variety of meters, styles, scales and
patterns. These short themes enable a player to become
more comfortable in keys with multiple sharps and multiple
flats and is excellent practice for the high and low
registers. These varied compositions also aid in
recognizing intervals, different types of scales and
sequences. They foster concentration, attention to
finger synchronization as well as having to 'go the
distance'in managing one's breath control. It is also
about training your eyes and ears to 'see'and 'hear'
ahead, resulting in a quick-thinking approach.
