The Etude is also known as a Study. The Etude is a piece designed to teach a particular technique. It may also be that they were written solely to strengthen students' stamina.

Some techniques can include:

2. Running in octaves

3. Running in thirds

4. Playing in staccato

5. Playing with a dominant left hand

6. Stretching

7. Speed

8. Rhythm

Chopin wrote many Etudes for the piano. So did Czerny.
