The provision of online exams is a new and very exciting step for us and, we hope, for our community of teachers and learners too. I completely understand that many of you will be disappointed that you cannot use these online exams sooner.

However, by launching them in the UK with a limited number of candidates, we can make sure that the processes and systems that support the exams are effective and run smoothly.

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.
