    The review about transposing is spot on, doing the first set of exercises in C (all white notes), is just repeating a specfic pattern over and over. A great explanation of where to expand to other keys is in Playing the Piano for Pleasure, by Charles Cooke.

    Every student should "warm-up" their hands before practicing, like a runner would do stretches before running. This book of exercises provides finger/hand stretches.

    Hanon was an organist!! The hand position for a pianist is not the same. Use with care.

    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.

  • 2012-08-07 00:00:00.0 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
