About This Lesson

David Leisner teaches Etude No. 2 from his series on Heitor Villa-Lobos’ 12 Etudes.

In the first half of this lesson, Leisner covers the primary musical and technical considerations students should make when learning this piece. Then in the second half, he shares exercises you can try for eliminating neck tension and relaxing your “gaze,” both important aspects for making complex pieces such as this one feel more effortless.
