Piano Games 2 is a continuation of Piano Games 1, and introduces exercises built on the chromatic scale. The exercises in Chapter 1 are in patterns of two, three, four, and five notes, followed by broken thirds, and contain all of the possible chromatic intervals and all of the possible fingerings.
It is important to train the fingers to play on both white and black keys because of the difference in the level of the bottom of the key bed. Chromatic exercises are a unique first step in training the muscles to obtain a tactile control of the entire keyboard in preparation for solving the technical problems in the repertoire.
Chapter 2 provides training for the movement of the thumb under the hand and the hand over the thumb. Chapter 3 has exercises in broken sixths and octaves. Chapter 4 consists of broken chord patterns. Chapter 5 has all of the major scales and arpeggios, and Chapter 6 presents more five-finger exercises.
Piano Games 2 has been written for persons of any age who are just beginning their piano studies. Practice time for the entire book is thirty minutes in a moderate tempo.
