Étude-Fantasies was commissioned by the Music Teachers Association of California. The terms were for an intermediate level piece, suitable for piano students aged 10 to 13. It is published and © by CF Peters, Edition 68307.

I was brought to the MTAC's convention in Los Angeles in 2010 to coach the piano students who had learned the piece, and also to speak to composers. Three duos of young pianists raging in age from 8 to 16 had learned the Étude-Fantasies, and I talked while they played and people watched. Two of the duos, together with my antics, made it on to YouTube, thus.
