Joanne Haroutounian’s Palette of Touches

Palette of TouchesThis book introduces students to a variety of legato, staccato, and chordal touches to gain an aural awareness of tonal colors and technical tools to produce them. Together, teachers and students learn to define interpretive decisions in music using descriptive, clear-cut “touch vocabulary” to help students define dynamics and fine-tune their sound.
