    Hey Jodi, I actually talk about the importance of etudes in my latest two webinar classes focusing on the etude book “Wohlfahrt.”

    Wohlfahrt Etude #5 Webinar

    If you are feeling like these etudes are too easy, I suggest checking out any etudes I suggest in my “5 Habits of Top-Level Players” article. Keep in mind there is a lot more to an etude than just the notes. It’s about how you vary rhythms,

    Thanks so much for the list of etudes. I started with Wohlfahrt, but I am also working on Sitt etudes. I like them because of the slurs. At first it was really difficult, but now the slurring is going better every day and I believe it’s because of that that my sound in general also has improved.
