A Dozen A Day Book One: Primary contains pre-practice technical exercises for the Piano. The purpose of this book is to help develop strong hands and flexible fingers.

The aim is to learn two or three exercises at a time, which should be played each day before practising. Only when these are mastered should you add another. When all in the first group are mastered, the next group may be introduced. Many of these exercises may be transposed to different keys.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating This book, and the entire Dozen a Day series, are a fantastic way for young players to build up the strength and technique needed to become good players.
I used these books from the age of 6 and they proved an invaluable aid to me as a beginner. The only drawback is that for a youngster, the excercises can be a bit dull, but I assure you they are worth sticking with as the benefits far outweigh this small drawback.

Customer Rating Ideal for use with children who have been learning for a couple of months. The exercises are short, lasting only a few bars, so can be learnt fairly quickly, and are useful warmup exercises for the start of lessons. Can be used with adults too, as long as they don't mind the stickmen drawings and childish titles of the exercises.

Customer Rating Excellent technical exercises, pianistically arranged, easy to sight-read. Students of all ages always enjoy these, which are good for warming up as well as supporting technical development. Also useful to supplement sight-reading, and as a learning tool for transposition to other keys!

Original, clear format; illustrations simple and imaginative, cleverly depicting the required skill for each exercise. Appropriately written for each grade / level.

Customer Rating This is easy to follow book for beginners with lots of exercises for the fingers. My son has found this book to be staright forward and fun.

Customer Rating What a fun way to build up technique and skills! It's not long and traditional which can be a little boring for young children.

Customer Rating A good technical book to run alongside another method. Introduces some useful techniques to the younger player.

Customer Rating I find this great for kids and young adults who don't have the motivation or time to work on studies. The exercises are short enough for the student to feel a sense of achievement, and the technical aspects covered are a very valid.

Customer Rating Excellent exercises to warm the fingers up. Plenty of variety and great value.

Customer Rating These "do what they say on the tin" exercises are great. I used them as a child when I was learning and use them myself with my pupils. They are short so don't labour a point, but are fab for concentrating on a particular element of technique.

Customer Rating A great series of books and recommended for pianists of all standards.

Customer Rating A fantastic collection of technical studies to help with a whole host of techniques and to promote flexibility and strength of hands and fingers. Use notes from C below middle C to the C above middle C (mostly) so can be used by a pre-grade 1 student. Fun, clear, interesting and effective.

Customer Rating Very approachable and clear exercises that manage to encourage some excellent techniques without being dull.

Customer Rating Really good book. It is just like gym for your fingers and cd is such a great help with timimg and rhythm.


Customer Rating This is a great series of books which the children enjoy. The pieces are short, are good warm up practise excercises, and also develop sight reading.

Customer Rating A simplified but equally effective set of books for the younger student to learn finger techniques.

Customer Rating Love the Dozen a Day series. A great way of establishing and improving technique for beginners.

Customer Rating Contains very good exercises that my children WILL actually follow! Can't be bad...!

Customer Rating A fun way to practice technique in small doses

Customer Rating I was introduced to A Dozen a Day study books by my children's teachers nearly thirty years ago and have used them successfully with all my pupils. They are a good way of warming up the fingers at the beginning of a lesson or individual practice and introduce new techniques in a simple and easily achievable way.

Customer Rating Been going years and still the best for developing strong fingers and a sound technique

Customer Rating In a way this book is very simple, but it really does offer a progressive vehicle for piano technique. The exercises are short, and start from absolute basics. You can set one or two a week for a pupil, and the simplicity means they can concentrate on learning the technique that each one focusses on. And because the exercises take hadly any time to learn, pupils don't get bored, either.
