This video shows a technique exercise for all fingers executed with both hands simultaneously.
What is this exercise for?
This is a great warm-up exercise that will
- strengthen and increase mobility of all the fingers,
- promote finger independency,
- relax inactive fingers.
This exercise is most effective when each finger stays in contact with its respective key at all time. The goal is to learn to keep the non-playing fingers inactive. This does not mean, that they must be completely still. They may wiggle a little bit along side the active finger, and that’s ok, as long as the fingertip rests on the key.
