Moyse: 24 Petites Études Mélodiques – No. 20

I know I said i was going to try to post an etude a day through the end of this book, but it seems that life has gotten in the way. This has been a really challenging week for everyone, and it’s been difficult to focus on etudes when the world is facing huge issues that demand our attention and support.

I found this particular etude to be a bit repetitive, so with that in mind I tried to work on shaping each phrase. This one is a really good example of how to practice four-note patterns with a variety of different rhythms. I’ve used these variations to work on tricky sixteenth note groups with my students a lot, so it was nice to find an exercise that does exactly the same thing.

See you tomorrow for the last Donjon etude!
