Back Pocket Piano Patterns - E-Book with Video Instruction by Marcy Davis

Back Pocket Piano Patterns - E-Book with Video Instruction

  • Exercises disguised as beautiful music
  • Build coordination between the hands
  • Accessible to beginners and more experienced players
Coordination between the two hands can be challenging for beginners (and non-beginners, too!). 

That's why I created Back Pocket Piano Patterns.

The exercises in this book are: 

  • Based on common musical patterns from contemporary classical and popular piano music.
  • Designed especially to build coordination and help the two hands work together. 
  • Presented in a format understandable to note readers and non-readers alike.

I generally introduce this resource after students have completed the 6-Lesson Beginner Course, though students may start as early as the first or second lesson.

What's Included

  • A dozen basic patterns in 5-finger/home base position
