The purpose of this book is to help develop strong hands and flexible fingers. Do not try to learn the entire first dozen exercises the first week you study this book! Just learn two or three exercises and do them each day before practising. When the first dozen—Group I—have been mastered and perfected—Group IL may be introduced in the same manner. When the entire book is finished, any of the groups may be transposed to different keys.

These books continue to be standard issue in my own teaching, and indeed my students even ask for the next in the series without prompting. It stays open better than some! The engraving is the original, and paper colour white; an off-white as used in many other music books could perhaps be considered in a re-print in order to make the book easier to read, and prevent any black and white glare.
Here is a rare interview with her where she explains the ethos around the books — including that the material was written to develop technique but via rote teaching: Edna-Mae Burnam: interview In the original series there were six books, taking a student up to intermediate level around Grade 5.
This edition includes all 6 books with added features in one place. In reality though, some of the later exercises are for advanced pianists — this is a purchase that a studying Grade 8 pianist could find benefit from the Dozen A Day Book 5 section. In contrast the first book mini book can be used in the very first lessons. Perfect for rote teaching, it puts in place legato, staccato and couplet slurs, along with two note and triad chord playing, contrary motion work and chromatics.
Across the board through all the six books the left hand is not neglected, being given an absolutely thorough workout in every edition. A Dozen A Day can provide our students with a solid foundation to tackle challenging technical repertoire throughout the different stages in their playing.
Added to the original volumes is a new performance piece by Christopher Hussey at the end of each. These are very much in the style of dear Edna, and a lovely addition for practising all the skills tackled in the previous pages.
But what makes these books really worth the purchase along with having it all in one place! The categories include:.
