Fitness Training

Did you ever know that physical fitness has a lot to do with keyboard performance? While training for competition I used to do pushups on my fingers to strengthen my forearms which accomplished two things. One, it enabled me to perform grueling compositions like Chopin’s Etude in C minor without tiring, and two, enabled me to perform at volume levels at both extremes, whether loud enough to fill a concert hall, or soft enough not to wake a sleeping child.
