Personally, I’ve studied it through, but I found it difficult to make it the center of my study, or my teaching. I beringsr Oscar Beringer is or was American – that’s what I’ve always thought anyway.

I’ve been berunger to do about 30 mins each day. For beeinger more advanced level, a choice from the 51 Brahms exercises would be also useful. I know I got a beating the 1st time I did the exercise. 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.

Or already used in the past? They’re definitely not musical at all — Czerny is much nicer. Rod, while finger strenght is very important, I would recommend alternating this kind of technique with something involving more wrist and arm action, and to always mantain a playing posture of great flexibility, never allowing your forearms to get stiff.

I made a note of the other ones as well. They seem to work fairly well for warm up as well. Do them in a relaxed fashion, without stretching anything.

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!!!

Anyone familiar with this technical exercises book?? – MusicPlayer Forums

With the other materials you depend pretty much of the teacher. My book is in Portuguese and French.

I agree, however, that there are pianno ways to get there – if your teacher has a good, integrated method, you shouldn’t worry. Think of your whole arm, from shoulder to fingertip, as a whole lever there are really four or more levers invoved, but they should behave as an unity.

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.

Just wondering if you guys are familiar with it, and what you thought. I bought it based on the recommendation from my piano teacher – he’s gone thru a few of those books, and this exercsies one of the one s he felt was the more well-rounded. Anyone familiar with this technical exercises book??

I find them challenging but they do seem to help with certain skills. Well, that’s it, hope one can answer these questions, I’ll be very thankfull. One thing I’m noticing more and more is that you have to keep on moving in learning piano, always getting challenging stuff make my old difficulties easier, ;iano so on I don’t have more than an hour in exercise 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.

The samples on Google Books look like the Schmitt exercises; I wonder how they differ.

I’m trying to balance a few things right now as far as my piano lessons, but it feels this book is helping my playing overall. The general consensus seems to be that the exercises are helpful, and harder than they appear. I agree – it does seem to focus on finger strength, although some of the later exercises do focus on exerciess, 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.
