- Triplets (3 variations)

- Arpeggiated (2 variations)

- Gruppetto/Turns (2 variations) .

This is a total of 694 exercises (the major and minor keys x 19 variations).

 

Audio Files - there is one demonstration audio file in the key of C at the start of each study variation, to help you listen to the style of each study. The one exception to this is Chapter 4, Interval Studies and specifically the Major and Minor Variation 4 Intervals. As these cover 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th intervals, the audio for each key is provided for the exercise variations as this is helpful in listening to the chord structures. The demo audio files have been arranged at various demonstration speeds depending on the type of study and start with a four beat count introduction. The audio files are mainly tongued, however as you use the studies experiment with slurs, staccato tonguing and other patterns of play.
