Burgmüller's piano music is mainly intended for juvenile
performers, and his opus 68, 76, 97, 100, and 105 etudes are
widely used for piano teaching today. Etudes in opus 100, Twenty-Five
Easy and Progressive Studies for Pianoforte, are used for
piano lessons especially for juvenile learners with small hands
because of the following reasons:
- There are no octave fingerings.
- The widest range (interval) is the seventh.
- Each piece as a unique title and the pieces are pleasant music, especially in the ears of children.
Zen-On Publishers' Burgmüller Op. 100 Twenty-Five Etuden (published in Japan) has been used for piano lessons by Yamaha method. After completing a two-year primary course (age 4-6) and a two-year secondary course (age 6-8) of basic musicianship, Yamaha students (age 8-10) usually start taking individual lessons with this etude book.
