Arpeggios, like scales and broken chords, are useful when playing piano:

  • they're made from the notes of chords
  • they feature in all kinds of music

Practise in a range of keys, gradually building tempo and confidence as you get more familiar.

  • Start: 1 octave / each hand
  • Next: 2 octaves / each hand
  • Then: 1 octave / both hands
  • Finally: 2 octaves / both hands (which opens the way to more octaves)

Here's a video showing how to play all the major and minor arpeggios:
