## Parallel sets practice - 03/21/12 09:05 AM

Hi everyone!

I have recently read C.C Chang's Fundamentals of Piano Practice. The author talks a lot about Parallel sets practice as a very effective way of gaining technique and managing difficult passages in pieces. The problem is, I don't quite understand how to use this approach after reading his book.. I don't understand what it is really :P Can someone please try to explain these so called parallel sets and how to use and practice them for me? I would really appreciate it! I would also like to here your thoughts on these exercises, good or bad?

Thanks!
