There are seven pieces in the Children’s Suite for Piano, and each piece is a beautiful little composition that stresses some aspect of technique, such as trills, within the context of a complete composition that is aesthetically pleasing.
Music for Study...is a broad title that encompasses five separate sets of minatures....Fine composed these pieces for didactic purposes, but not specifically for her own few students. Children’s Suite is a wonderfully successful set and should be more widely known and used among piano teachers.
