Tour and Tutorial


Student Videos


Each piece in Keyboard Challenges and the companion set Piano Patterns is based on a single motif or idea, often inspired by a keyboard configuration that is then developed in a simple and often deliberately repetitive manner to aid students in memorizing these pieces quickly and easily. Students can learn these as pre-reading keyboard “etudes,” each of which is designed to contribute to the student’s developing sense of the keyboard, of touch and dynamics, rhythm and form. A preface details suggestions for approaching the pieces pedagogically. MIDI accompaniments are available and are meant to be challenging and colorful.
