I have blogged about scales before (you can read my blogs here and here) because they are such an important element in playing the piano. There are those who can’t bear the thought of spending hours practising them but they really don’t have to be viewed in this manner. Vlog 19 offers a few more tips and some reasons why scales will only benefit your piano playing.
For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my piano course, Play it again: PIANO (published by Schott Music). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, the course features a large collection of progressive, graded piano repertoire from approximately Grade 1 to advanced diploma level, with copious practice tips for every piece. A convenient and beneficial course for students of any age, with or without a teacher, and it can also be used alongside piano examination syllabuses too.
