The idea is to learn two or three exercises at a time, which should be played each day before practising. Used efficiently, effectively and within a holistic musical learning programme, A Dozen A Day: All Year Round is undoubtedly as indispensable a resource today as Edna-Mae Burnam’s original books were back in the 1950’s. Songs in the Mini-Book include: Any Dream Will Do • Can You Feel the Love Tonight • A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes • Heigh-Ho • I'm Popeye the Sailor Man • It's a Grand Night for Singing • Lean on Me • Love Me Tender • So Long, Farewell • You'll Never Walk Alone.We have been in business for over 80 years, since 1936, so you can be sure you’re purchasing from a trusted musical instrument dealer. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. You quickly learn these and the patterns that each exercise uses so there's more time spent actually pressing keys rather than trying to work out which note it means. All the exercises are named after physical exercises or activities, suitably (and quirkily) illustrated.

However you choose to introduce and use exercises from A Dozen A Day, remember that like any cycle of technical exercises, using them inappropriately won’t just potentially mitigate against any benefits, but could cause fresh problems for players. A bonus: it can be helpful to talk to the student about technical problems the exercise helps with, asking them to identify passages in their new, active and recent repertoire which will benefit. Most in C major, hand position middle C RH, Octave below for LH apart from some that include larger arpeggios.
Absolutely love this little book; totally agree with the reviewer(s) saying how it improves not only finger dexterity but sight reading, along with being quite an enjoyable set of exercises.
