    Difficulty Level:
  • May 19, 2012 Quite a workout!!!

    I'm out of shape and this is really working finger independence. It always seems like that's goes first for me. Joseffy demands that I concentrate all the time. No breaks like you get with Hanon, etc.This is definitely the work I need right now.

    Difficulty Level:
  • August 28, 2008 Excellent Technique Book!

    This is a great book for the people bored with hanon, czerny ,etc and I rate this much higher than both Hanon and Czerny. It has all kinds of finger strengthening exercises, scale exercises, octaves, thirds all written in an innovative way, sometimes with a support finger holding down a...

    key all time while other fingers do the exercises.. this is great for finger strength as well as dexterity! Another feature I love is that most exercises have to be played through all the 12 notes.. unlike the first so many exercises of hanon which you play only on the white keys (but you could of course do those on the black keys as well, but these exercises are tailormade for you to play on each of the 12 keys) This was the only exercise book my teacher in Vienna asked me to get.. This however must be played only when you have attained a certain level of playing, say an intermediate level.. This is for a lot of passage preparation, legato playing, etc.
