The purpose of this book is to help develop strong hands and flexible fingers. The idea 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.

        Easy to learn, and get speed up.
        You need to bear in mind the age of the child, some find it a bit childish!

        excellent - good workout for the fingers

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

        A very useful series for all ages of sdtudent - short pieces, relevant techniques and fun.

        Short little exercises to help with finger dexterity. Younger students like them as they are quite quick to learn and they can have fun playing them faster.

        I use the dozen a day for all ages and abilities, basic drawings and easy to follow.

        I grew up with Dozen a day and I am still using them in my teaching today. Excellent finger exercises and a great incentive for children to practice them as they understand that they are warming up to play the piano in the same way that you warm up to do sport.

        The Dozen A Day series is brilliant for fingering technique and increasing playing speed. It also reinforces what is already being learnt. The short exercises are great warm ups!
