These exercises are written for children, as well as etudes Czerny-Germer, so it would be strange to see the same passages in each hand – this is the highest aerobatics, how was the author himself!

Exercises of Oscar Peterson are essentially a hybrid between the phrasing of bebop and blues in the right hand and the overall shape of Czerny etudes – it even looks identical. I am willing to use them with students in the initial stages of learning jazz, not the instrument.

Firstly there is no much of the fingerings for a child’s hands, and find it for jazz phrasing is very difficult – this is the first thing I do in class.
Secondly there are no precise designation of jazz articulation,that easily turns etude Peterson into etude Czerny with the rhythm of the Viennese polka. Generally requires a sensitive teacher…
