Free Stuff: Parallel Octaves

I just posted a free book of Parallel Octave Exercises on the Free Stuff page.

I’ve only just started appreciating parallel octaves as an exercise in the past year. They’re an outstanding left hand workout.

What’s In The Book

  • A discussion on the left and right hands with some things to think about while practicing parallel octaves.
  • Three exercises that I find beneficial.
  • Rhythmic variation examples for each of the three exercises.

Thanks to Matt, Giacomo, and Hans for taking a look at the book and finding all my mistakes!

    Giuliani’s exercises in 3rds, 6ths, octaves, and 10ths are spectacular for this kind of study. Cheers,
