One of the most useful – and beautiful – ways to connect melodies and phrases is to make the piano sound like a guitar or harp using this technique: the arpeggio.
Arpeggios are chords played one note at a time (sometimes known as “broken chords”), and a vital technique for pianists to master. In this episode of Pro Piano Tips, I teach you how to play C major arpeggio in all 3 positions: Root, 1st inversion, and 2nd inversion. Arpeggios present some special challenges given the wide spacings between notes, and I go over the 2 critical finger and hand (and elbow) techniques to make them perfectly smooth.
