Piano Technique Book 5 expands the skills emphasized in Piano Technique Book 4. Through engaging Warm Ups and Etudes, students are encouraged to explore diatonic and chromatic scales, chords, inversions, and chord progressions. The exercises also focus on important, intermediate level skills: finger substitutions, extended and contracted hand positions, grace notes, playing a waltz bass, and refinement of articulation and coordination. Each Warm Up and Etude has its own original accompaniment, available on a separate CD or GM disk. The exercises in this book are carefully correlated to the music in Piano Lessons Book 5.
