    This is the very best method book you can start out with, take it slow and steady -- that's the way to win this one over.

  • March 29, 2013 Czerny Op.599 . . .

    5 Stars & 2 Thumbs UP! This is the great 'old standard', a must have a use each day for any piano student, but my good teacher always recomends that a new student of piano start out with FIRST completing Ferdinand Beyer's Op.101 with Czerny's Op.823 - Czerny...

    's 823 is much better written then 599, shorter, easier, and along with the F. Beyer will help make it much easier to tackle the tough stuff in the latter part of Czerny's Op.599! The beginning student really should start out with the more 'assecible/easier' F. Beyer Op.101 and/or Czerny's Op.823....But, this one book of Czerny's Op.599 once it's 'masterd', then one can easily go on to so many varied great Master works of any of the Greatest composer's! Bravo to Czerny's Op.599 forever!!! Work it hard, and you'll see results with patience.

  • July 31, 2008 Favorite Edition, Favorite Technic Book

    All of my students eventually get a classical technic book, and this one is my first choice for most of them. Many editions of this work have awkward fingerings that require a hand position shift every time there is a repeated note. I find that to be completely unnecessary and...

    very confusing for students. This edition provides common sense fingerings that lets the student focus on the reading and technical issues. My only complaint with all of the current editions is the presence of finger numbers for every note. The student doesn't have to read the notes at all. I white almost all of the out, but that is a lot of work for me. Most piano methods don't include enough contrapuntal work. Using Op 599 fills in that gap perfectly. All students should get that training.
