  • March 20, 2014 A definite must for all pianists!

    These exercises are excellent to warm up your fingers. I had started working with them a while back, then left them, and now I realize that they were very helpful in warming up my fingers before playing scales, chords and arpeggios. Recently, I've come back to them and have...

    truly seen and felt a difference in my playing. A definite must for all pianists interested in advancing their technique.

  • August 07, 2012 Excellent exercises

    There seems to be some debate about the usefulness of Hanon. I think that most of the criticisms fall short because they usually assume a particular approach or practice method and this seems to be the problem, not the exercises themselves. If used correctly these exercises can be very useful...

    to help build strength in lacking areas and of course they encourage evenness between the hands which is always good. I would recommend this to any pianist who wishes to conquer their technical challenges

  • July 25, 2011 Beginner and advanced!

    As an advanced pianiast, you can just dive right in. I love this and can vouch for them to be excellent, none better!. I have been noticing that there are some who rate the Hanon as "Advanced," and others say "beginner." As an advanced pianist I use them as written...

    . For late beginner and above students, there is a highly readable version in eighth notes, going up and down one octave instead of two. (Bastien, last I heard). Also, try playing around with different rhythm patterns instead of straight sixteenths all the time. It changes which fingers get the workout.

  • May 29, 2011 great book for all

    As a Intermidiate/Advanced player who has been playing for 11 years, I fully recommend this book to students and professionals alike. You don't have to follow the exact method perscribed in the book, but it can be beneficial. Your technical ability with really start to improve by the...

    10th exercice! You should be beyond the five-finger stage before you start it though.
