Think of berimger 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 mean, of course I totally trust my teacher, but I’m a curious individual and I want to know different kinds of approach. Just wondering if you guys are familiar with it, and what you thought.

So I took a few of the Beringer exercises and berijger them, in order to integrate them in my teaching and personal technique.

Do you use it? Originally posted by marino: Finger strength is what I still need, thought. I’ve been trying to do about 30 mins each day. I found this so absurd that I became very curious about this book! berinegr

It’s very good to have a teacher, but also, have a material with an organized practicing schedule is pretty important since we have to be a little indepent ourselves berjnger. I made a note of the other ones as well. I know I got a beating the 1st time I did the exercise. With the other materials you depend pretty much of the teacher. Dave BryceExercoses Fortner. 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.

But I don’t mind spending time on things that don’t sound pleasant, if they beringdr me do better with the things that do sound pleasant. The author’s name is Oscar Beringer.


My teacher dislikes Hanon I’ve never actually since the exercises myself – he says they are too narrow in scope. 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.

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.

Hi thumper49, I think if they are challenging this is very positive. You are not logged in. Al-mahed, my teacher has given me a handful of the exercises from the Rational Principles of Cortot. Personally, I’ve studied it through, but I found it difficult to make it the center of my study, or my teaching. Originally Posted by thumper It seems to concentrate on finger strenght, but I love to work on elasticity, too.

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!!! 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.

Any idea what the nationality of the author is? A lot of jazz players seem to like the Beringer book. Print Topic Switch to Threaded Mode.

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, and so on They’re definitely not musical at all — Czerny is much nicer.

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? In fact, I have cerny, hanon, beringer, burgmuller, etc, but cortot seems to be the only author who gives an organized practicing schedule.


Thank you for sharing experience. I would advise to do the Beringer in conjunction with Hanon in several keys, modes, rhythms and articulation and maybe some Dohnanyi or Cortot. 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.

Or already used in the past? 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. What you guys think about it?

I agree, however, that there are other ways to get there – if your teacher has a good, integrated method, you shouldn’t worry. 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.

Sorry I can’t be more help. The title of the book would be roughly translated as “Daily Technical Exercises” I’ve been using this book for veringer a few weeks now – I think it’s fantastic, it’s doing wonders for my technique, finger strength and finger dexterity. Well, that’s it, hope one can answer these questions, I’ll be very thankfull.

My book is in Portuguese and French. Do them in a relaxed fashion, without berijger anything. My teacher is completely sold on Cortot. Hanon is surely limited in scope if taken alone!
