From the Publisher

Graham Sheen writes:
'Twenty Six Melodic Studies is intended as a supplement to preparation for grades 1 to 6. I have used as my guide the required scales at each level by both ABRSM and Trinity examination boards. The Studies remain within the compass of the set scales and arpeggios and employ only the notes which they contain. Nevertheless, the student will encounter some challenging combinations of notes within these tonalities. In addition, each study focuses, though not exclusively, on either articulation, technique or phrasing. Most importantly, the Studies cover a wide variety of styles both serious and humorous, ranging from classical models through to jazz and modern dance forms: finding the right character for each one is as essential as finding the right notes.'
