It is clear that Haydn had a strong influence on the composition of these works. In fact, Mozart once claimed: "I have learned from Haydn how to write quartets" (Berger, 286). Nonetheless, Mozart's unique personality and technical mastery are also apparent in these works.

Haydn and Mozart represent the classical style in music, which was popular during the late eighteenth century.

As Beethoven’s apprentice, he not only inherited to his student, Franz Liszt-another great pianist and composer whom lived in the Romantic Period-well theoretical music education, also nurtured him with exquisite piano playing technique. In his whole life, 2he composed more than eight hundred piano etudes for students’ to practice in any kinds of piano studying stages. But not all etudes were required to be played by us because not all of them were effective for us. (Piano technique, Walter Gieseking, page 50)In this paper, I will select some Chopin etudes to research, and then research how to use the Czerny’s advanced etudes to prepare to play them.
