Re: Infiltrating from the Facebook Playground Sessions Group

trying not to bang on the keys

A big challenge for me is trying to avoid banging on the keys. I am so happy to have my fingers in the right places (I'm there - HIT IT!) that I don't pay attention to the dynamics of the piano. It's something you can appreciate when you hear a pro play. I find that only after I get the piece down f...

A bold line over a note means I held it too long?

I have just noticed a couple of notes have dark lines directly over them after I run though the piece. They aren't always there. Does this indicate I am holding the notes too long...or maybe not long enough?

have you used Hanon exercises?

I am about finished with rookie boot camp, but am not satisfied with the ability of my 4th and 5th fingers of both hands to match the greater strength and agility of fingers 1 and 2. I happened to look at some books on piano playing that I have had for several years and came across "Hanon exercises"...
