  • April 11, 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. Remember practice 'hands separate' at first, then slowly 'hands together', you'll have most enjoyment practicing this way.

    5 Stars! You'll love this book...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 along '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 much tougher stuff in the latter part of Czerny's Op.599! The beginning student really should start out with the more 'assecible/easier' F.

Bravo to Czerny's Op.599 forever!!! Work it hard, and you'll see results with good patience, and much patience. Happy playing!

  • March 27, 2009 Classic Book of Etudes

    Few piano teachers question the value of the Czerny etudes. This volume is appropriate for students in level 2 of a standard method; it progresses to about level 6 or 7. Editions of this opus come in two types: ones that change fingers every time a note is repeated, and...

    ones that allow the same finger to play a repeated note. This edition is a "change fingers" edition. The Peters and Universal editions allow the student to use the same finger, making for fewer position shifts in the earlier pieces. The Peters and Universal editions can be used sooner than this edition, because the change of fingers sometimes makes a simple passage more complicated and the fingering awkward. I prefer the Peters version for students at this level.

  • February 02, 2009 great for children/teenagers and adults!

    The books starts out pretty easy but progressively gets more challenging. My student who is 13 is currently working out of it now and we are still at the beginning but I know it will be a great challenge for him! Czerny really knows how to build great technique for...

    pianists!!

  • December 27, 2007 Educates the fingers,good for self-study

    This is for those who already know how to read music,know which pitches are which on the keyboard,but can’t translate that to the fingers in real time. I call it intermediate because things progress quickly.From the first page the marked fingerings force awareness of the fingers...

    and keyboard spacing.Before using this book I had to memorize a piece before I could play it(had to look down a lot)Now I can actually play as I read since I know what various intervals feel like between fingers and 'in space'.I am not a slave to a particular fingering since the book uses alternate fingerings for identical figures within the same exercise.Unlike Hanon, there are lots chords,and these exercises that almost force the hands and arms to relax(you can hurt yourself with Hanon if you're not careful or studying with a good teacher).If you want to get a 'feel' for the keyboard so as to be able to play what you hear as well as what you read,this is a great book. Even my blues improvisation has improved.
