Benefits- Improves the quality of piano playing
Piano-Yoga says, "When people just start to play the piano or don’t play regularly, their fingers remain weak. It takes years of regular practice to establish strength in the muscles that work fingers and hands."
"Just as an athlete needs to warm up properly before more serious exertion, a musician needs to warm up before playing or singing all-out. Players of different instruments utilize different types of warm-ups and can learn a great deal from the way they are structured."
