David Weinstein plays 4321 Octave from the Shaak Technique Book

This Haun and Shaak student  is playing an exercise from our Shaak Technique Book called 4321 – 21 and 4321 – 5121. Practicing this pattern improves the repetition technique at the piano – important in many piano compositions. It also lightens the pianist’s “touch”. You can improve your performance of this exercise by listening to a ping pong ball bouncing on a tile surface.
