It is a great privilege to have been able to commission this wonderful set of études from 12 of New Zealand’s foremost composers. Each composer was assigned a specific piano technique based on the concepts described in the book Fit 4 Piano and asked to write an étude using that skill. The idea was for these études to provide a creative way of practising the technical principles that are outlined in the book.
These études are beautiful pieces which could also be grouped together as concert repertoire. A video performance of each piece by one of New Zealand’s most celebrated pianists, Stephen De Pledge, can be accessed through the QR codes printed with the notes on the music at the end of the book.
In discussing the technique for each étude, these notes refer to video exercises from Fit 4 Piano and from our online course Exploring Piano Technique. These exercises can be practised in conjunction with learning the piece to help the ease of playing.
An innovative way to learn and practise piano technique
We are excited to announce the launch of our brand new online course ‘Exploring Piano Technique’. if you have enjoyed our book Fit 4 Piano but want to dig deeper into the concepts, then this is for you.
