About This Lesson

Rene Izquierdo performs and teaches the first ten of Leo Brouwer’s Estudios Sencillos.

In this lesson, Izquierdo focuses on the primary technique featured throughout the ninth study - the slur. As Izquierdo points out, the most challenging aspect of this piece comes from playing "free stroke" instead of traditional "rest stroke" slurs. Other topics covered include right hand planting and using speed for overall development.
