Today I’m going to educate you a few finger exercises that will help you build up speed and dexterity around the piano. Let’s start our finger exercise because old standby, C Major. With whatever hand where you will start with, play in the first five notes in the scale, using all five fingers. Work your way from C to G, then back off again. Don’t play you wish you can yet. Start off nice and slow and be sure that all on the notes is the same volume. You want steady movements. Don’t flick your fingers, move them steady plus a lower motion.
Now let’s proceed to a full scale, repeat the F major scale. Start slowly, playing only 1 octave to start with. Play around the octave, nice and slowly. Once you are certain that you are playing the notes steady and evenly, you’ll be able to begin to post speed. It’s best to utilize a metronome of these practice sections. Start with a slow tempo and slowly yield the pace in the metronome. Practicing in this way insures you will develop a proper a sense of musical timing. It’s also an enjoyable idea to rehearse playing blues scales. When you’re playing a blues song it sounds really good to play a quick blues scale with an appropriate part from the song.
The last finger exercise I am going to discuss is arpeggios. An arpeggio is the place you take part in the individual notes of an chord as an alternative to hitting all of them together. Play the notes of the chosen chord then work your way inside the keyboard, playing higher and octaves on the chord.
Whatever methods you’re considering for finger practice, do not forget that starting off slow and building speed may be the proper way to insure that you aren’t learning improper habits. As you practice the exercises your fingers will establish the muscle memory required to take part in the scales faster and faster without needing to think about the notes.
