This week's edition of Deconstructing Andersen brings you another way to look at Etude No. 1 in C Major. Below you will find a free nine-page booklet featuring all four of the studies from last week's post. The side-by-side comparison format will help you see where each study came from. There is also space for you to write your own study!
You might notice that no dynamics or articulations are included in this edition of the etude. I did this intentionally; when you work with any music, practicing it in many different ways is the key to ingraining it. However, we tend to imprint on the markings in the music and they can distract us when trying to change things up in our practicing.
Lightly pencil in the type of dynamics and articulations you want to use in your experimentation with this etude, or better yet, put the printed music in page protectors and use fine-point dry-erase markers to make changing the markings easier.
