PIANO DEXTERITY (SEE VIDEO)

Learning to play the piano and learning to play a song are two different concepts. Learning to play a song is like going to a fast-food restaurant to order a burger. Learning to play the piano is like becoming a chef.

There are three formats for playing chords (block, broken, and arpeggio) and one way for playing scales.
