Hi, i hope you are fine.
I have a question about piano technique, i am a beginner, i can do all my scales and triads arpeggios (triad's broken chords and triad's standard arpeggios) at 60 bpm (4 notes per beat) so what should i do next? Octaves? Other kind of arpeggios? Thirds ? Hanon? Pischna? Other exercises ?
Thank you

I think voicing is also an essential technique and what better way to develop voicing skill than playing Bach WTC?

I hope you are combining your study of scales, arpeggios with a lot of music!

I would suggest you continue your work on scales, concentrating on playing all notes evenly. Listen to hoe you sound. Vary how you practice them. A few suggestions:

1 crescendo up, de-crescendo done
2.play the two hands at different volumes — this will help with Cyg’s idea of voicing.
3 play one hand staccato and the other legato. Switch between hands
4 play one hand quarter notes, the other eighth notes

You get the idea— be inventive with how you practice

Sit down at the piano, eyes forward, put both hands on the keys, start playing whatever comes to mind. You'll quickly get a really good idea which level you're at.

Play the same thing in both hands and then start mixing it up and play different things in each hand, with different rhythms, at different speeds, with different dynamics. This is how you take off the straitjacket that you never knew you were wearing and open your eyes.


There is a big difference between knowing something and being good at executing. One is conscious, the other is subconscious, and the path to the subconscious does not usually lead through the conscious.
