Nice’n Easy Piano Music

Book 4

Finger Games

In this book I included the most conventional exercises for piano. Practising one etude each week will provide a good basis after a year or so for a firm technique in playing piano.
It is very difficult for beginners to read two systems, two clefs while checking their own posture. Therefore it is useful playing these etudes first by heart and only with one hand to allow students to concentrate on their posture and position of hand and fingers. This is especially necessary for children.
After perfecting and playing various etudes properly and from memory in C major, I make them transpose the etudes into other keys, generally depending on the keys of other pieces being learnt at the same time.
