FINGER STRIKING! One of the first things that I think is essential to playing the piano is having firm fingertips to play the piano. Firm fingertips give you the power and control to play quickly but also with different dynamics. These take some focus but will be rewarding in the long run!
CORRECT WAY: I play it correctly the first few times. Keeping the first knuckle strong and unbreakable.
INCORRECT WAY: After a few good strikes I play it with bad technique. Most commonly the finger will break in the first knuckle and collapse which is something you don’t want! However, you also don’t want the finger to be too curved where you are playing on the fingernail! Try to avoid these positions! -
Finally, as I show, having firm knuckles and finger position allows me to play quickly and accurately across the keys.
