Practicing those exercises will definitely help. Everyone can benefit from Hanon`s "Virtuoso Pianist" and Czerny`s "The School of Velocity". They`re great for developing finger strength (especially in the left hand, and the weakest fingers - usually being the 3rd and 4th) and advancing your skills technically. Every exercise in the book is useful, however, exercises 39, 40, and 41 are indispensable. These deal with scales and arpeggios, and are important for every pianist to learn and have imbedded into their memory.
