The final download for the 12 days of Christmas is here!! The last download addresses the strength of your left hand. This exercise is designed to help you with finger articulation, while keeping your left hand as relaxed as possible. Before you start to practice this exercise, make sure you read the directions that Dounis wrote.
Since this is the last blog of the series I want to leave you with a note that Dounis wrote at the end of his Daily Dozen:
Play everything always in an absolutely free and easy manner without any constraint or stiffness, whether mental or physical. Have consciously in mind that elasticity-suppleness- is the basis of artistic playing. Think of the acrobat who performs the most difficult and most intricate “Tours De Force“ always “Smiling”. The secret of technical perfection being not to give the impression that you have difficult in conquering a difficulty.
