The technical tools and artistic skills learned in Technique 1A are enhanced and expanded in Technique 1B. Four new technique tools are introduced that relate to smooth legato, crisp staccato, rising wrist and amazing phrasing. Patterned exercises provide repetitions that make technique feel natural and artistic etudes showcase a students technique in an expressive musical setting. New to this level are Hands-Together Workshopsthat focus on developing the skills necessary for coordinating hands-to gether playing. Each page in the Technique Book correlates with a specific page in the Lesson Book.
