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

A lot of jazz piaho seem to like the Beringer book.

T├Ągliche Technische Studien (Beringer, Oscar)

I made a note of the other ones as well. 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. 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.

In fact, I have cerny, hanon, beringer, burgmuller, etc, but cortot seems to be the only author who gives an organized practicing schedule. I think Oscar Beringer is or was American – that’s what I’ve always thought anyway.

With the other materials you depend pretty much of the teacher. Think of bberinger 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.

My book is in Portuguese and French. I exervises 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.


Thank you for sharing experience. I would advise to do the Beringer in conjunction with Hanon in exercisss keys, modes, rhythms and articulation and maybe some Dohnanyi or Cortot. Well, that’s it, hope one can answer these questions, I’ll be very thankfull.

For a more advanced level, a choice from the 51 Brahms exercises would be also useful.

My teacher is completely sold on Cortot. Beriinger you use it? They seem to work fairly well for warm up as well. 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!!! The author’s name is Oscar Beringer. Originally Posted by thumper Hi thumper49, I think if they are challenging this is very positive.

Personally, I’ve studied it through, but I found it difficult to make it the center of my study, or my teaching. Any idea what the nationality of the author is? Anyone familiar with exerciss technical exercises book?? Finger strength is what I still need, thought.

She told me that what I can learn from Czerny I can learn better faster from Oscar Beringer and Alfred Cortot the other exercisee we’ll start soon, Principes rationnels de la technique pianistiquethe problem is that Czerny is more “musical”, while Beringer is boring, although valuable, stuff.

Hanon is surely limited in scope if taken alone! I find them challenging but they do seem to help with certain skills.

Just wondering if you guys are familiar with it, and what you thought. Do them in a relaxed fashion, without stretching betinger. The samples on Google Books look like the Schmitt exercises; I wonder how they differ.

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.

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? I have no idea if the guy is brazilian or what. I’ve been trying to do about 30 mins each day. 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 beringre.


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 What you guys think about it?

They’re definitely not musical at all — Czerny is much nicer. I agree – it does seem to focus on finger strength, although some of the later exercises do focus on elasticity, sxercises 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.

Print Topic Switch to Threaded Mode. It’s very good to have a teacher, but also, have a beringfr with an organized practicing schedule is pretty important since we have to be a little indepent ourselves either.

But I don’t mind spending time on things that don’t sound pleasant, if they help me do better with the edercises that do sound pleasant. Hello everybody, Today I had my week piwno with my piano teacher, and she started to work with me using Oscar Beringer – Daily Technical Studies for Piano. My copy is in English only. So I pisno a few of the Beringer exercises and modified them, in order to integrate them in my teaching and personal technique.

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. I found this so absurd that I became very curious about this book! Al-mahed, my teacher has given me a handful of the exercises from the Rational Principles of Cortot.
