Keyboard Finger Exercises
~Study Focus home page~

Anybody hoping to become or remain a keyboard player or performer of any proficiency needs regular technical practice. This Musicarta Study Focus page offers some guidance and resources.

Hanon

The Hanon finger exercises have been a staple of piano teaching for a century and a half - and with good reason. They are easy to understand and play, and train the fingers as well as warming the hands up nicely for repertoire practice and performance.

Musicarta has produced a video version of these exercises - along with a lifetime supply of challenging, fun variations - which you can read about on the series home page.

Here's a sample video from the first section (the simple demonstrations).

But you might get bored with that! The Musicarta Hanon has plenty of variations to challenge you. Here's that same pattern, trimmed down to six-eight metre and played in tenths.

You keep meeting new challenges and expanding your comfort zone, even in your technical practicing.

THE MUSICARTA HANON
video course

The Musicarta Hanon is a fully featured video version of these timeless finger exercises, accessible to players of all levels and orientations. Explained, demonstrated and expanded with ten sets of stimulating and challenging variations, this collection will help unlock your musical potential.

Pentatonic scales

The five-note major and minor pentatonic scales are 'practically music already', and every minute spent practicing - or simply 'messing around' with them - is time well spent.

Musicarta has a fully featured Pentatonics Workbook, which teaches the pentatonic scales methodically and sympathetically and demonstrates, in attractive, achievable repertoire performances, the music these familiar and loved scales easily produce.

Browse the sample Musicarta Pentatonics Workbook content on this workbook home page.
