When teaching students, I have always been told that this is the general etude sequence to follow:
Wolfahrt, Kayser, Mazas, Dont, Kreutzer with some Trott, Whistler, and Sevcik thrown in.
However, if a student comes who is 15 and at about the Kayser level, There is no way we could get through all of that with any success before graduation. What etudes do other teachers feel are essential, and which ones can easily be left off of the list?
