P2 - B6

Finger technique

  • Maintain appropriate finger shape
  • Coordinate finger movement with more ease and fluency

Use finger patterns in warm-up exercises, leading to scales and arpeggios.

Teach learners some simple major, minor and pentatonic scales, modes and arpeggios, using different articulations.

Continue to check learners’ finger positions when playing by ear, from memory and from notation.

Playing scales and arpeggios, with and without music, will help to develop muscular memory and aural/reading skills.
