1. Warm up

Set up a stable tempo you like and repeat the same pattern and fingerings following the circle of fifths: C major, G major, D major, A major, and so on. This exercise is completed when it comes back to the first key. Each exercise contains syncopations and suggests various dynamics and expressions such as accents, crescendos, decrescendos, forte, piano, etc. Try to shape the exercise with the indications to avoid it sounding flat.

Tip: The pitch with the finger number 5 is the tonic of the next key.
