Finger speed is important in playing piano music. The faster we can move our fingers over the keyboard the better we will play any music that we want to learn. When we know our notes on the keyboard well and can use them to play music without having to think about where every finger goes before playing a note, the more advanced music we will be able to play as well.
There are specific exercises that you can do to increase your finger speed when learning a new piece. Incorporating these methods to increase finger speed in your playing is important to do on a daily basis to get the most benefits from them. Let’s see what these three tips are.
First – you want to learn the notes of the scale of piece that you are going to work on.
Second – make sure that your finger technique is correct.
Third – practice to the beat of a metronome.
One of the biggest mistakes that we all make is trying to play something faster than we can. This leaves room for all kinds of mistakes and the melodies won’t move together smoothly and we just won’t end up playing the piece very well.
As always, start slow. Learn what notes you are required to play in the piece or scale, make sure you know the fingerings and hand positions for all of the notes, and then start working with your metronome at a slow tempo and work up daily until you are at the faster tempo.
