Never played piano in my life. I used this book in conjunction with Play Piano Now Book 1 of the Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course. The exercises are easy to learn and understand. I have memorized the warm ups by using them every day. My fingers behave themselves now when I sit down to practice. I'm moving on to Play Piano Now Book 2. Woohoo! Not bad for a great grandma.

I am an adult beginner and using the Alfred Basic Adult course books. I like this 'Finger Aerobics' book and I use it every day in conjunction with the lesson book. I use the exercises in this book as warm-ups because it gets my mind thinking about which fingers play which notes before I open up and review lesson material.

Highly recommend this book for piano students of any age, young or old. My kids who are also piano students, have fun with this book as well.

More notes and tips about each exercise could be better. May be a DVD with video clips accompanying this book would be a perfect combination.

I guess I should have read a little better but this is for actual finger exercises, not scales on the piano for you to run to strengthen fingers. However this may great for someone with mild arthritis to help out before playing.

Exercises for fingering for the piano. Not fantastic because the adult cannot be a beginner. Moves a bit fast for beginners.
