Due to their longer form, technical difficulty, and musical challenges, characteristic studies are ideal for long term study. Whereas typical etudes might be a week-long project, characteristic studies are often best treated more like sonatas and approached methodically with care and patience.
This characteristic study bundle is exactly what you need to stay in tip-top shape and develop your skills. Classics from Balasanian and Clarke should never be overlooked, but we think that the studies from lesser-known composers like Blaha and Komst deserve time in the spotlight as well.
One thing’s for sure: with this bundle, never again will you be stuck without anything to work on, instead, you’ll find yourself with too much good stuff to choose from!
