Dexterity means to be able to perform a difficult action quickly and skillfully with the hands. When it comes to the piano, developing dexterity means that you will be able to play faster and more accurately. It also means you’ll improve your control and endurance. All of these things really important to all piano players. A key element of developing this speed, accuracy, and strength is warming up properly and paying attention to your form so that you don’t hold unnecessary tension and develop bad habits.

We’ve got you covered with this lesson! Cassi will help you explore ways to warm up and strengthen the hands (you can do these anywhere, you don’t need a piano) as well as piano exercises that provide bursts of strength, skill building, and finally, relaxation for your fingers. You can think of this as a gym class for your fingers!

Remember, you never want to feel pain while you play. Take breaks as often as you need to and for as long as you need to. Taking breaks isn’t a bad thing at all, it means that you are listening to your body. Building strength and dexterity in your hands in an overnight skill. It is a process that takes time, dedication and patience. Enjoy the journey!
