    Difficulty Level:
  • April 07, 2014 The Best

    This little book made me into a pianist. The shortness of the individual exercises disguises the enormous amount of ground they cover, some of which might seem familiar to those who know the exercises of Hanon, Czerny and Brahms, but the concise format used here simplifies the idea of technique...

    , while still requiring as much hard work as any other training. There are, after all, no short cuts to exceptional virtuosity. Even the "Hour a Day" of the title is deceptive, since one can work very usefully for a mere ten minutes on any exercise which deals with one's own personal weaknesses. The "Hour" is only a suggested timeframe for covering a wide range of techniques in one session, if that's what one wishes to accomplish. Of course the book does not replace a teacher in any way - Eric Harrison was, himself, a marvellous pianist and teacher, but it is an invaluable source to keep in one's library as a brilliant technical tool which seeks to avoid the stress of mindless repetition.

    Difficulty Level:
  • May 27, 2008 Nothing extraordinary

    The page "Hints on Practicing" would probably be more helpful if correct height of piano bench,position of arms and hand,etc. were included.My repertoire varies from Chopin and Mozart to Scott Joplin,Gerschwin,Blues and Popular. The intention of the book is appreciated but some of the instructions...

    are kind of vague especially if no teacher is around.
