Suddenly, try playing a scale with your right hand.
Can you play continuously from the middle Do to the Do one octave above it?
If the finger number is “12312345”, it is correct.
Here, you need to wedge your thumb under your middle finger on the “3 to 1.” Did you play it smoothly?
It takes some knack and practice to make the fingers
It takes some practice to get your fingers to wiggle flexibly.
Here are two tips, so if you are not good at this, please refer to them.
Slide your wrist
Does your wrist sink or rise when you dip your thumb?
If the wrist moves, unnecessary force is applied and beautiful scales cannot be played.
Slide the wrist quickly to the right around the middle finger placed on the mi, and the thumb will naturally move to the right.
At this time, try to play with ease and without any tension in the wrist.
You will surely be able to slip your fingers through with more ease than ever before.
not letting one’s fingers fall asleep
If you are playing with your fingers lying down, your wrist position will be lower than the keyboard at the same time.
This is a very bad position for playing the piano, not only for scales.
If the fingers are laid down, it will be difficult for the thumb to pass under the middle finger, resulting in a slower tempo.
It also makes it difficult to play fast passages because of unnecessary force in the fingertips.
You may have been taught to hold down the keyboard like a cat’s paw or an egg, and if you do exactly that, your wrist will never fall below the keyboard.
Practice scales while being mindful of not letting your fingers fall asleep.
