Ogunleye Eunice Thursday, 23 August Thanks for the composition and arrangements, it really help to improve in all keys.
Aris Thursday, 19 July I spent years practicing and learning all of the Hanon exercises as a child. Once I learned them, my piano teacher had me to play all of the exercises from the first exercise to the last non stop, of course, at a fast tempo.
These are great exercises for developing good technique, regardless of the style you want to play -- pop, jazz, blues or classical. GP Trooper Tuesday, 13 February Justin Friday, 02 February Please ignore the advice about playing without notation.
To really learn the piano you need to learn theory, notation and you need to practise techniques and scales. No one got great playing along to Taylor Swift. Renny Friday, 26 January One way to improve the piano playing is to play without notation. In other words, just rely on hearing. Try playing familiar songs without any notation. Music essentially relies heavily on hearing.
Sam Monday, 31 July Hajira Tuesday, 23 August Rushabh Trivedy Sunday, 01 March Andreas Thursday, 15 January Great site!
Thank you very much! And even more for offering most of them for free! I just started learning piano but my teacher showed me the first exercise and that's why I searched online for Hanon.
Deon Govender Monday, 18 August Gaman Thursday, 26 June Cedric Sunday, 10 November It is a wonderful source for an aspiring pianist, and I look forward to diving in and improving my strength, flexibility, speed and precision.
Question though in terms of practicing in different keys Is one meant to practice Exercise 1 in the key of C and then move on to Exercise 2, 3, etc all in the key of C? Or should one practice and master Exercise 1 in all keys before moving on to Exercise 2?
Thanks a lot for this website.. Carlinton Friday, 31 August These are great exercises for beginner, intermediate and advance piano players.
I have practice some these exercises in the past and they helped with my speed, finger strength, and accuracy. From time to time I dedicate a day just to practice these exercises. I have encourage my piano students to use these piano exercises during their practice sessions.
David Roland Marsilia Tuesday, 10 July Thank you for these exercises!
I am just beginning to study the piano seriously, and I play better by ear than by sight at this point, so your audio files really help. I wonder, have you guys abandoned the second two sections? Maybe by the time I have mastered the first section, you will have published more. Or maybe I will be proficient enough by then to download his book and read them myself.
At any rate, thanks and I hope y'all are still around! I remember when my piano teacher first made me start practicing scales with Hanon, I was in the fifth grade.
I hated it instantly, but now I realize how valuable the exercises are. Squid Wednesday, 07 December Thank you for your time and effort on this site. I'm enjoying the exercises very much. Arup Banerjee Monday, 01 August Allen Long Sunday, 10 July What a great site!
Thank you for the brief bio on Hanon. I have looked for years for even a little information about his life. Andria Tyler Thursday, 31 March Neil Freebern Sunday, 27 February Wonderful resource! This is really going to help us out in the classroom.
Linda Calhoun Friday, 25 February Craig Wednesday, 12 January This web site is fantastic! Hanon The Virtuoso Pianist in 60 Exercises, all to no avail! I just wanted to hear what they are "supposed" to sound like. Then I just happened to stumble apon this. After all three parts are mastered, Hanon recommends all exercises be played through daily to retain technique.
Criticisms[ edit ] The most common criticism of the Hanon exercises is that having students drill on purely physical exercises results in an unmusical, mechanistic attitude toward the piano. Critics  argue that practicing in an unmusical way dulls one's musical instincts, especially when forced upon children and beginners though in the introduction he does state that the book should be begun a year or so after beginning piano study , who need to cultivate their musicality rather than inure themselves to rote physicality.
It is also argued that it is more efficacious to practice one's musicality as one practices one's technique; training in most art forms involves practicing technique, however repetitively, within artistic context.
It is further argued that musicality drives technique; the flow of musical expression is a potent motivator to finger agility. In the notes accompanying his work Hanon considered his exercises less "dry" than other "five-finger exercises". Some detractors, such as Abby Whiteside have dismissed the very notion of finger independence which they are intended to encourage, insisting instead that only a technique based on the use of the humerus can be effective.
This does not prepare you to be either a pianist or a musician.
Too often, teachers assign technical exercises as a shortcut to technical mastery. It is easier to assign pages from an exercise book than to analyze and break down the physical elements in a specific difficult passage of music Dorothy Taubman is one of the well known pedagogues who campaigns against technical exercises, asserting that they do far more damage than good.
Certainly, indiscriminate practicing of exercises can damage a pianist just as forcing repetition of a difficult piece. In my mind, the question should not be whether or not to use technical exercises, as much as how to think physically at the piano.
