Time for another piano warm up/exercise video❗️🥊🎹
Many of you ask me what I do to perfect my technique so this is meant to give you an idea of what I like to come up with to challenge myself (being the nerd that I am 🤓🤦🏻♀️) •
First, I have to say that when I am just starting to play, I don’t start fast right away☝🏼. I’ll play regular scales (😴) for about 5-10 minutes before doing anything else. •
Most of the tricks I come up with are aimed at improving coordination/muscle memory/strength and agility.
Some of my favorite challenges are:
1) Alternating between black and white keys
2) Having your hands go in opposite direction, (that run down in thirds ☠️🤪 is no walk in the park, but it works!💪🏼) 3) Purposely trying to throw yourself off by playing patterns that are a bit unnatural, because this allows you to gain greater control of the keyboard, and makes common challenges seem like a piece of 🍰😋.
I hope this gives you some ideas💡to try! Sound off in the comments below if you have any questions and let me know what you think!
(Watch me play this slowly in stories⤴️)
