Exercises for Daily Practice...

Post by Heimdal on Mon Jul 06, 2009 12:13 am

Hi, i been playing piano just for about two weeks now Cool. As i am just a beginner i intend to develop all the abilities from....the beginning, so i am creating a schedule. As far as it goes it goes like this:
Stretch.
Technique:1. Scales. (Chromatic and major scales for now)
2. Hanon.
3. Chords.
4. Arpeggios.
Listening.
First i practice right or left hand and then the other. Then both hands. All the technique i always do it with metronome. The lecture part i intend to do it as i need it and Andrews lessons teach it. Very Happy
Now...the problems.Rolling Eyes First i don't know any stretching exercises (i mean like putting like this the hand against the piano...etc). Second i don't know any chord exercises, (i only know the exercise that Andrew showed to remember all the chords) i was wandering if there are other exercises and also for arpeggios. And last, and MOST IMPORTANT what exercise can i do to improve my NULE ability to play one rhythm in one hand and another rhythm in the other hand?
Can you help me please with my problems? Also any advises about abilities i haven't take into account?
Thanks...and sorry for the long post...Razz

What I do to stretch:

Hold your arm out in front of you, as you were going to push a door open. Pull back on your FINGERS, not your wrist, and you should feel your wrist also stretch. Keep your hand outstretched and bend your wrist the opposite way, and bend it at the wrist.

or

Hold your hands up like you're praying, and match up your fingers to each other. Take each finger and cross them, one by one.

Its hard to explain, but I saw it in one of piano lesson videos, its a good stretch.

Hope that helps.
