Details about Köhler : 12 Easy Studies, Op. 157 |  Associated sheet music


These Twelve Easy Studies for the Piano, Op. 157 by Louis Köhler are considered to be among the most important technical works for young piano students.

Louis Köhler provided no tempo or dynamic indications in these studies.

As a result, each study should be practiced in a tempo suitable to the ability of each student, and in a complete range of dynamics, going from pp to p, mf and f.

In the Foreword to the original edition of these Studies Op. 157, Louis Köhler gives the following indications :
  • Practice each study by sections
  • Practice each section with separate hands
  • Each section should be mastered with hands together before a new section is taken up
  • Repeat difficult measures until they become as fluent as the easier ones
  • Make a clear distinction between legato and staccato notes :
    • Legato passages should be performed with a soft but firm pressure of the fingers, raising each finger precisely when the next key is struck
    • Staccato notes are to be played with a quiet wrist, firm fingers and a bouncing hand
  • Follow all fingering indications in order to develop confidence in playing
  • Adjust your tempo so that playing is easy and natural
