Navigating the keyboard without looking

Post by pianoob » 14 Jun 2012, 16:08

Hi everyone.

Are scales and arpeggios the best way to learn your way around the keyboard without looking, or is just playing from sheet music the best way?

Thanks.

Whatever works best for you; experiment and see what works. In my view scales and arps are terrifically good for you....but then so's eating lettuce. Do a mixture then your attention will be engaged but you'll bwe having fun too!

Sorry, I should have said; I think Dave Brum asked Barrie when he wanted to be removed - you could do the exact same thing. Sorry I can't help - I'm a technopillock of the highest order and am Not To Be Trusted with technical questions!
