The study of technic is an integral part of any complete education in the performance of a musical instrument. Â Piano students who consistently practice scales, arpeggios, chords, and finger exercises will gain greater finger strength and flexibility as well as increased fluency and accuracy in performance. Â Familiarity with these technical elements also enhances a secure understanding of basic music theory.
Now,Â Scale SkillsÂ from theÂ Neil A. Kjos Piano LibraryÂ provides an organized system for the study of scales, arpeggios, chords, and finger exercises. Â Eleven appropriately graded levels ensure steady progress as pianists advance in their study of technic. Â Each level reviews and incorporates the exercises and activities from previous levels, helping students develop a solid technical foundation.
