According to composer Everett Gates, of Eastman School of Music, "one of the most difficult problems confronting music educators today is the adequate preparation of their students for the performance of contemporary music..." Of his book, Odd Meter Etudes for all instruments in Treble Clef, "the first eighteen etudes are original. They incorporate a great number of compositional techniques employed by contemporary writers: modal and contrived scales, twelve-tone organization, retrograde melodic inversions, less usual formal organization, 3, 5, and 7 bar phrases, etc."
