The Brown’stone: The Only Arpeggio Exercise You Need

This week in The Brown’stone on No Treble, I’ve got an excellent way for you to practice arpeggios. This exercise is one of my absolute favorites. It targets every aspect of your musicality by working your left-hand agility, right-hand dexterity, your ears, and it’s a beautifully melodic sequence that plays like an etude. It’s one of those exercises that can easily be applied in almost any musical situation.
