On your marks... Get set... Go! Get running, skiing, swimming, and dancing your way to playing the piano with this lively collection of sporty exercises!
When we learn a new sport, we take for granted that we will need to do warming up exercises. Learning the piano is no different. Just as in any sporting activity, a few technical exercises can increase control, reduce muscle stress, and prevent strain. This book introduces essential workouts for the hands in a gradual and fun way. Make these activities a regular part of lesson and practice time. Pick one or two each time you practice and use them to warm up.
A very creative and helpful instrumental tutor book written by Fiona Macardle. To be used in support of a graded method series, this book is full of original ideas which help to make practicing and learning fun, including warm ups, midweek training and fitness level tests/pieces!
