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 two-book piano course, Play it again: PIANO (Schott). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, 49 progressive pieces from approximately Grade 1 – 8 level are featured, with at least two pages of 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.
