Galloping Fingers - Early Intermediate / Intermediate


Lise V. Gauthier

Developing important technical skills at the intermediate level is best accomplished through short musical studies. This composer (from Quebec) has provided each etude with an imaginative title (in English and French) that, along with the music, captures the imagination. Technical skills include chromaticism, repeated notes, crossing the thumb, grace notes, finger substitution, octaves, hand crossing, voicing, and double-note thirds and sixths.
