These types of exercises add on to what you started with your scales and arpeggios. They will increase your finger speed, knowledge of the keyboard, clear articulation, and accuracy.
Hanon Exercises are the best place to start for finger work. These etudes will really encourage the connection between the left and right hand by mirroring the notes in each hand for the duration of the exercise.
Czerny Exercises are the next best etudes to increase your technical abilities and challenge you, so you can move on to more advanced pieces.
Once you’ve mastered this entire routine with your hands and fingers, you’ll really be connected, engaged both physically and mentally. You’ll also be ready to successfully start working through any pieces that you’re working on.
