The fun and easy way to tune up your technique and improve your playing

Is the piano your passion? This easy-to-read guide is bursting with fun exercises designed to hone your piano-playing technique, from warm-ups and major and minor scales to octaves, chord cadences, and more. You'll play challenging rhythms, practice with different tempos, play a performance piece at the end of each chapter, and find inspiration for performing music your way.

  • Warm up away from the piano — release tension in your hands, wrists, and arms and go to the piano feeling loose and comfortable

  • Wake up those fingers — perfect your hand position and develop left and right hand finger independence

  • Develop greater control — practice smoother finger crossovers and pass-unders for speedier scales and arpeggios

  • Incorporate greater movement — play chords without tension, jump across the keyboard, and move with ease in parallel and contrary motion

  • Ramp up your skills — perfect your pedaling, play grace notes, trills, and other fancy ornaments

Open the book and find:

  • More than 150 exercises that vary in style, key, and tempo

  • Major and minor scales
