A UnuSuaL way to gaiN technique :P
on: July 12, 2005, 04:56:40 PM
whats up everyone. my old account aint working so i recently made a new account :-X.

Anyways i heard someone say that there was once this great pianist who said that by milking cows is the bEST way to gain technique.  cant rememmber the name for the sake of oranges.

So i got a bit curious. I have this mini football just a bit smaller than my hand..i wonder if i sqeeze it regularly while im watching tv or when its too late at night to play the piano, would it be good for building up my technique and what type of technique would it increase?  :-*

call me crazy or whatever im just passionate :P

use the weight of your arm to make the movements of the fingers, not the fingers themselves.

Actually, if I pass by the kitchen it is quicker to get to the piano.

Only shortcut I know....
