    Following Michael’s advice in one of his lesson videos, I’m beginning to use Wohlfahrt’s Etudes in my practice. Does anyone have any advice on how to tackle what seems to be an overwhelming book?

    Hi Christie! You’ve been playing two years, right? You read music? Tell me why this book is overwhelming? Don’t look at the big picture.

    Breathe. Look at page one, number one, line one, measure one, note one. You know what to do next.
    no fear

    Thank you for the words of encouragement, Dianne. I guess by “overwhelming” I mean that each page is so full of notes it looks like there is no room to breath. I know it just “looks” that way and that by narrowing it down to one line at a time — like I do when learning a new piece — is all I have to do. Thanks again for your help.
