comment Improving fretting hand strength
This is absolutely the way to go. The majority of fatigue issues are due to problems with technique. These problems don't always present as obvious roadblocks to basic playing; more often than not, they show up after several years and simply prevent a person from advancing. Learning to use larger muscle groups, how to roll onto the side of one's barring finger (like, along the x-axis), and figuring out how to use as little energy/pressure as possible to produce a sound are key. Often times, one or two lessons with a qualified instructor is enough to straighten things out.

comment Best way to notationally indicate that a solo phrase in an instrumental section should end
I was staying away from "tutti" due to the fact that I thought that it generally indicates that the entire ensemble should begin playing. Just to be clear, it's safe to use it sectionally as well?

comment What is the foundational book of Czerny finger exercises for piano?
Thanks, Josh! Are there certain scales to learn, specifically, or is every scale book going to have the same fingerings in them?

comment What is the foundational book of Czerny finger exercises for piano?
Thanks, Alex! I ended up choosing Eugen's answer due to the fact that I was looking for the industry-standard. I'll for sure take a look at the Hanon, though.

Thanks! I ended up asking a super-piano-friend who suggested the exact same volume! I appreciate the help!
