Complementary Chimes Exercise
Back at the beginning of my teaching career, my students needed a good ‘warm-up’ exercise that helped to develop strength, agility, speed and control in their finger-work – and this is what I created for them. In fact, this comes from the 2nd in a series of over 40 exercises based on the same theme that has laid the foundation of great technique with all my students – many of whom are now star players and will be known to you (I’m very proud of my students)!!
This is the best known exercise which can be played in Canon – and for more fun with technical training (yes, I did say fun!!), please check out my ‘Book of Chimes’ – and Volume 2 is coming soon.
Consider this to be your daily dose of ‘Harp Aerobics’ with a guarantee of great technique resulting.
