Technique Books

6 Item(s)

Tersun Press publishes the world's finest piano technique books. They solve the basic problem of how to go from one note to the next.

We start from the beginning. Every book begins with exercises in two-note patterns, with all possible diatonic and chromatic intervals from a minor second to the octave, and with all possible fingerings.  The exercises are presented in a progressive, sequential order, from the simple to the more complex.  Technical problems are presented gradually, and are solved gradually, step by step.  The exercises will train the muscles to play all of the intervals with ease.  This is immediately applicable to the repertoire, resulting in significant progress and improvement.

All of the books have the same format: (1) exercises with patterns of two, three, four, and five notes, broken thirds, sixths, and octaves, (2) exercises with the thumb passing under the hand, the hand passing over the thumb, (3) broken (melodic) thirds, sixths, and octaves, (4) extensions based on broken-chord patterns, (5) double-note thirds, sixths, and octaves, with a held, supporting finger, (6) five-finger exercises, and (7) scales, arpeggios, chords, broken chords, octaves, broken octaves, and scales in double-note thirds and sixths.

This a complete program for developing the technical requirements for playing the great works of the piano repertoire.
