In this piano tutorial I'm going to go over 5 exercises I indulge in from time to time to keep me in shape. They're great for building finger independence and strength, simple enough to be picked up by a beginner but complicated enough to challenge veterans if played sufficiently fast.

Remember to always practice slowly and with a metronome at first until you feel confident in your playing and can play each note evenly. Then slowly pick up the speed. If you're starting out, think... See More

Remember to always practice slowly and with a metronome at first until you feel confident in your playing and can play each note evenly. Then slowly pick up the speed. If you're starting out, think long-term: it takes many months to build up technique on these, so don't rush! Remember, if you can't play it slowly, you sure can't play it fast.

These 4 exercises are fantastic for anyone wanting to improve their speed, dexterity, hand independence, and control.

These are geared towards beginners, but they can be used by any level as a great way to 'wake up' the fingers and develop muscle memory.

Some good thoughts on teaching and some excellent things for educators and lovers of music to hear. Currently out-of-print and unavailable on DVD, I thought I'd make it available for those interested in gaining some insight into music pedagogy and the professional environment.

In this video I explain Circle of Fifths and demonstrate some of its many uses in music composition.

The Circle of Fifths is a visual representation of the relationships between the 12 tones of the chromatic scale. It was invented by the Greek philosopher Pythagoras and is so called as it takes the form of a circle around which each of the 12 tones are laid out. As you move around the circle in a clockwise direction, the next tone you encounter will be a 5th above the tone before it... See More

In this video I explain Circle of Fifths and demonstrate some of its many uses in music composition.

The Circle of Fifths is a visual representation of the relationships between the 12 tones of the chromatic scale. It was invented by the Greek philosopher Pythagoras and is so called as it takes the form of a circle around which each of the 12 tones are laid out. As you move around the circle in a clockwise direction, the next tone you encounter will be a 5th above the tone before it.

The Circle of Fifths lies at the very foundation of western music theory and is therefore extremely useful as you can refer to it to help you find out things like, what key you are in. If you are in a major key it helps you find the relative minor key and visa versa. It tells you which chords are available in which key. It can even help you to transpose your music into a different key and move between keys within a song.

You must be aware that the expression “avoid thumb under” does not mean that the thumb should be still or stiff and never cross the other fingers.

It means that, when playing scales or runs, the thumb should gradually approach its next position and the point is that you MUST NOT PLAY LEGATO between the thumb and 3rd or 4th fingers.

Instead, your hand should make a very little and inaudible jump when changing the horizontal position on the keyboard.
