About This Lesson
David Leisner breaks down the first of Heitor Villa-Lobos’ famous Twelve Etudes. The lesson begins with Leisner’s thoughts on the importance of working from the 1928 manuscript.
This is followed with a detailed look at the mechanics of first the left and then the right hand. In addition, Leisner discusses his approach to slurs, harmonics, and bar chords.
