War Horse

Czerny edited by E.R. Kroeger

My crumbling copy of "The Art of Finger Development" by Czerny. While the music teacher boss was away one day, some very cool underlings - Mr. Haber & Mr. Toronto, let me loose in a collection of sheet music in the junior high school music office. I didn't really get with this book til my late 20's, but it's been my regular companion since. I rotate with Chopin etudes and Bach preludes & fugues, but there's nothing like it for developing/maintaining speed & power, and for nimbling up. The cover is long gone, and one by one pages disappear or render themselves trash-worthy; but the decay is from age & use, not neglect! :) - SO
