Melodious Etudes for Technical Development
Composed by Ricky Lombardo
Published by Alry Publications

      Melodious Etudes for Technical Development have a unique approach to repetitive practicing techniques. Each is intended to have fundamental rehearsal habits writtne into the exercise. The idea of practicing something lengthy over and over can be discouraging to the student. I have intended to make a necessary technique an enjoyable experience. 
      At all levels of musical development one noticies, in many instances, that students do not practice correctly or efficiently. With this thought in mind, these etudes ere created. All studeis are very melodic and interesting while maintaining technical goals. As the musician begins the etude, they will encounter some type of fingering difficulty. This is then usually repeated in the enxt similar section. The exercise then moves inot a third part, or B form, which is completely different. The final phrase will then repeat the first section with sometimes a variation, even if only in the form of articulation. Although all etudes do not follow the exact same form, they all follow the principal concept. By the time the student has played through the exercise once, tyey have encountered the same fingerings several times and has thus practiced efficiently without even realizing it. Since all of the etudes are melodic, they are fun to play.
      I have intentionally kept them short as not to be discouraging. Keys up to five sharps and five flats are utilized in both major and minor forms.  — Ricky Lombardo
