Anyone familiar with this technical exercises book??

Sorry I can’t be more help. They’re definitely not musical at all — Czerny is much nicer. She told me that what I can learn from Czerny I can learn better faster from Oscar Beringer and Alfred Cortot the other book we’ll start soon, Principes rationnels de la technique pianistiquethe problem is that Czerny is more “musical”, while Beringer is boring, although valuable, stuff. My teacher dislikes Hanon I’ve never actually since the exercises myself – he says they are too narrow in scope.

The author’s name is Oscar Beringer. She told me that when she was studying piano at university in Romania she set herself a goal of devoting one hour per day to Cortot for one year and swears that it changed her hand completely, for the better, in strength and independence.

Al-mahed, my teacher has given me a handful of the exercises from the Rational Principles of Cortot. I’ve found that “non-pianistic” warm-ups, like the exercises you would do in order to loosen your arm muscles before swimming, are very useful if done before playing, too.

I made a note of the other ones as ecercises. It seems to concentrate on finger strenght, but I love to work on elasticity, too.

Previous Topic Index Next Topic. I agree, however, that there are other ways to get there – if your teacher has a good, integrated method, you shouldn’t worry. Any idea what the nationality of the author is?


Exercjses posted by marino: I would advise to do the Beringer in conjunction with Hanon in several keys, modes, rhythms and articulation and maybe some Dohnanyi or Cortot. In fact, I have cerny, hanon, beringer, burgmuller, etc, but cortot seems to be the only author who gives an organized practicing schedule.

I know I got a beating the 1st time I did the exercise. For a more advanced level, a choice from the 51 Brahms exercises would be also useful.

I bought it based on the recommendation from my piano teacher – he’s gone thru a few of those books, and this is one of the one s he felt was the more well-rounded.

Hello everybody, Today I had my week class with my piano teacher, and she started to work with me using Oscar Beringer – Daily Technical Studies for Piano. Do you use it? I think Oscar Beringer is or was American – that’s what I’ve always thought anyway. The other thing she told me was that this authors are modern and have written better methods than the old folks like Czerny, Hanon, etc, whose study might lead to wrong technical playing? My teacher told me that a former teacher of her hid technique, that is, she discovered that hers former teacher, which who she spent 11 years of lessons, hid Cortot from her!!!

Daily Technical Studies for Piano: Piano Book: Oscar Beringer

I haven’t been able to find anything on Cortot’s exercises, except that he apparently taught playing with little tension, and was influenced by Matthay’s books. My teacher has mentioned a few others one in the past I’m drawing a blankso I’ll check with him if he’s familiar with these. With the other materials you depend pretty much of the teacher. I’ve been trying to do about 30 mins each day.


I mean, of course I totally trust my teacher, but I’m a curious individual and I want to know different kinds of approach.

Oscar Beringer and Alfred Cortot

I don’t have more than an hour in my day to give to piano, so obviously I’m not going to be following her example, but I do the few exercises she has given me to target specific issues finger independence, thumb mobility, for example. Just wondering if you guys are familiar with it, and what you thought. Hanon is surely limited in scope if taken alone! Do them in a relaxed fashion, without stretching anything. Finger strength is what I still need, thought.

I agree – it does seem to focus on finger strength, although some of the later exercises do focus on elasticity, at least it seems to me this way, the ones with the 4 note chords where you’re alternating between the pair of 2 notes A, I think, in my book.

The title of the book would be roughly translated as “Daily Technical Exercises” I’ve been using this book for about a few weeks now – I think it’s fantastic, it’s doing wonders for my technique, finger strength and finger dexterity. But I don’t mind spending time on things that don’t sound pleasant, if they help me do better with the things that do sound pleasant. I have no idea if execises guy is brazilian or what. One thing I’m noticing beriner and more is that you have to keep on moving in learning piano, always getting challenging stuff make my old difficulties easier, and so on Print Topic Switch to Threaded Mode.
