Warming up at the Piano

In this week’s Tip of the Week, we are taking a look at properly warming up at the piano before we play. Juts like physical exercise, it’s a good idea to warmup our fingers when we are playing the piano.

The benefit to warming up is that we will execute the music we are trying to play a whole lot better. In this example, we are playing a simple passage that takes us up the keyboard in a very smooth and controlled manner. As you get comfortable with one tempo, you can begin increasing it until you can play fast and clean. Starting slowly is always recommended to sound great.
