Overview

A musical palindrome is a piece which sounds the same when played forwards and backwards, in the same way that the words "mom" and "dad" read the same forwards and backwards. The brain and the fingers are both exercised when playing a piece backwards on the piano. Reading the notes backwards forces you to think differently and pay more attention. The palindromes in this book range from very easy to difficult. A special exercise uses 120 ways to arrange the five notes C-D-E-F-G (C-D-E-F-G, F-G-E-D-C, D-C-E-F-G, etc.). Practicing these pieces regularly can make you a better sight reader while increasing your dexterity.
