Piano Fingering

February 22, 2020

Recently I've been working on helping students with fingering issues, like when they don't use their thumb or pinky, especially when the song has five notes. For example, if a song has CDEFG, I try to get all of their fingers on those notes to help them succeed. At times, some of the students are concerned, yet I reassure them that to play music well they need to use all five fingers. I share with them at times, I put "invisible gorilla glue" on their fingers and have them put their fingers on the keys. Kids actually like that idea. It seems to help them better. 

 

So what I'm trying to do is figure out other ways to help them succeed. What do you suggest? I've used with beginners printed off hands and put their fingers on the board and have them play certain fingering examples. Going to pull it out next week and see what it will do. 

 

Thanks for your support.
