Every new piano student should develop good habits in technique from the very beginning. This involves learning the touch and training the muscles. Everything follows from that.
Piano Games 1 begins with exercises in two-note patterns which have all of the intervals and all of the practical fingerings. This makes it possilble to focus on learning the physical motions of depressing and releasing the keys (touch) and on developing the muscles in the arm used in playing the piano. The student will gradually and inevitably develop strength, control, and the ability to play evenly.
This is the reason Piano Games 1 has proven to be so effective for beginning students.
After the two-note exercises the book continues with exercises in patterns of three, four, and five notes, and broken thirds. Later chapters are devoted to training the thumb to play under the hand, broken triads, and five-finger exercises.
Piano Games 1 has been written for persons of any age who are beginning their piano studies. Practice time for the entire book is approximately twenty minutes in a moderate tempo.
