(Educational Piano Library). This book is meant to assist teachers who wish to introduce their students to creative composition but have limited lesson time available and feel the need for some direction in starting and continuing the process successfully. The process involves devoting as little as five minutes of lesson time to composition, but at every lesson over a period of, for example, six to eight weeks. Suggestions in the concise Lesson Plans help bring about gradual changes or improvements from week to week that are enough to keep the piece developing, and, more importantly, to keep the student immersed and motivated in the process.

Excerpt from The Piano-Teacher's Guide: A Graded and Classified List of Piano Music Selected From the Publications and Importations of G. Schirmer, New York The Etudeteachers and pupils. While in the principal current will always be found ﬂoating the three great etude collections - Clementi, Cramer and Chopin - there also exists a huge ﬂeet of lighter, swifter and perhaps more commodious craft. Their existence is simply the result of mankind's eternal craving for variety. The studies of Stephen Heller are no better than and not unlike Ludwig Berger's in general cast. They were composed because Heller felt the desire for creation. He wished, too, to give his pupils something that was more individually representative of his own personality than, say, the Cramer Studies. Thousands of pupils play Heller who have never touched Cramer or Cle menti, yet results have been about equal; and this is a typical case.
